Funerals “Life is changed, not taken away”
If you have recently lost a loved one please contact the Church office 954-961-7777. If you have a loved one in danger of death please call the Church office immediately so there is time for a Priest to come and administer the anointing of the sick, hear confession and your loved one can receive Holy Communion.
Funeral Masses and Memorials
Through Baptism, a Catholic begins their faith journey with the belief that death is not the end but a transition. We believe that Jesus rose from the dead and that in dying, he destroyed our death and that in rising, he restored our life. This is also a time of sorrow, and amid the hope and the sorrow, many decisions must be made. Since the Mass is the central source and summit of our faith, Catholic Funerals generally include Mass. The Mass is planned to incorporate the wishes of the deceased and provide opportunity for loved ones to reflect.
