Funeral Planning – Our Pastoral Care Coordinator, Linda Green, meets with the family of the deceased to assist in planning the funeral Mass, helping the family choose readings and select music. We encourage family members to participate in the Mass as readers and gift bearers. For additional information, including access to the readings and music, please click here.
Cards and Letters – We have volunteers who assist us in offering our condolences to families who have lost loved ones.
Seasons of Hope – Hope for Healing after Loss; ministry to the bereaved to experience the healing comfort of Christ through our faith community. They meet for six weeks in the fall and for six weeks in the spring. We are using the “Seasons of Hope” series. Those that grieve are at varying stages of grief and we will attempt to meet you where you are. Contact the Pastoral Care Office at 462-1336 ext 2010.
St. Pius X All Souls’ Day Mass – Each year we have a Mass to commemorate all those who have died in our parish over the course of the year, or family members of parishioners who have died and whose services were not held at St. Pius. This is a solemn and beautiful Mass at which all the names of the deceased are read. Families will have an opportunity to light a candle in honor of their loved one. 2019 date to be announced.
