Because of our belief not only in the immortality of the soul but also in the resurrection of the body, the Church professes hope in the face of death. And death is not something we need to fear. We profess in our Creed, “I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.”

But, how do we ‘Look Forward to Resurrection of the Dead?

Holy Death

During the month of January, we are gathering weekly to address an important topic, preparing for the end of life. These sessions are open to all – anyone looking to prepare for their own death, or the death of a loved one, as the program learnings and discussion keep a steady gaze on the promises of Jesus Christ. Additional information below.

“If, then, we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him.” (Rom 6:8)

Eternal Rest: Exploring the Mystery of Death & Dying

How do we prepare for a reality we cannot escape? Death remains with us, and it numbers our days. How do we understand and prepare for this reality we cannot escape? Eternal Rest presents the Church’s teaching about death and God’s response to it with wisdom and truth, gentleness and compassion.

For five-consecutive weeks, we will delve into this important topic. With videos and discussion guides we will walk through the important aspects of preparing for a holy death, including what the Church teaches, the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick and funeral preparations.

Beginning January 11, at 2:00PM in the Parish Center. Registration is required to best plan the space and provide materials.

Yes, I’d like to Join the Eternal Rest Sessions.
