On behalf of Pax Christi, the pastoral care ministry expresses our sincere condolences and prayers. We will journey and support you during this time of grief and sadness. Whether the death was sudden or expected the loss of your loved one creates a hallow space with many emotions and decisions. As we prepare for the funeral liturgy of your loved one, we will explore scripture and music to nourish this hallowed space. This ritual invites us to express our grief, pray for our loved one and celebrate the funeral liturgy that unites us with our loved one. As Christians, we profess hope in the Resurrection. In the Order of Christian Funerals (OCF), “the Church confidently proclaims that God has created each person for eternal life and that Jesus, the Son of God, by his death and resurrection, has broken the chains of sin and death that bound humanity” (OCF #1).
