MASS OF REMEMBRANCE Tuesday, November 28, 7 pm
Please join us in remembering and honoring children who were lost through miscarriage, SIDS or early death. It is especially fitting that we honor these lives during the month of November when we recall all those who have gone before us in faith. This Mass is especially intended to console parents, families and friends of those who have lost a young loved one.
