Funeral Pre-Planning can give you peace of mind and ease the burden placed on your loved ones by your passing. The entire service, including scripture readings, hymns and speakers, can be planned in advance. Our funeral pre-planning guide, Planning Before Death Happens, provides all the information you need to know about planning your service, including a helpful worksheet that can be kept on file with the church for future use. For more information, please contact a member of the clergy.

She organizes nurses and other health professionals within the parish to assist with events such as blood pressure clinics, flu immunization clinics, and blood drives.
