O God, almighty Father, who have strengthened us by the mystery of the Cross and promise us a share in the mystery of your Son’s Resurrection, mercifully grant, we pray, that your departed servants may be gathered into the company of your chosen ones. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.

The ministry extends support to those who are grieving and healing from the loss of their loved one

The St. Mary of the Assumption bereavement ministry members are available for a phone call or visit to listen and offer support during your time of grief.

When needed, bereavement sessions will be held at the parish for any individual or family to attend who is going through a difficult time after the death of a loved one.

Please feel free to call one of our bereavement members if you’d like some support after the death of a loved one.

A Prayer for our Dead

Rest Eternal, grant unto them O Lord
and let perpetual light shine upon them.

May they rest in peace.

May their soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
