My Dear Friends in Christ,
I would like to share a few words with you about our faith and our Church and what they teach as we prepare for eternal life.
St. Paul tells us that we do not live and we do not die as our own master. We are responsible to the Lord while we live and when we die. In life and in death, we are the Lord's. That's why Jesus died and rose to life again - that He might be Lord of both the living and the dead.
The richness of these words comes to mind often during the year, and especially on All Souls Day, when we pray for our departed loved ones.These words remind us that in our tradition of faith, it is the right of every Catholic and the preference of the church, to be buried in the sacred and consecrated grounds of a Catholic cemetery thereby sharing the community of faith that we share in life.
For further information on our cemetery and mausoleum continue to view the contents of our web site.
Together let us pray that the souls of the faithful departed will rest in peace.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Rev. Thomas Kessler
