Death is overwhelming. Death is emotional. Death is difficult - difficult to understand, difficult to believe, difficult to endure. That's why we invite you to "come share our hope." The parish community of St. Mary is here to help you and your loved ones in any way possible during this most trying of times.
Upon death of a loved one, if you have not already contacted some in the parish community, we will outreach quickly to you. We'll pray with you, help console you the best we can, and assist you in the preparation for funeral services, whether that be a Mass, the inclusion of prayers at the Wake, and/or burial information in St. Mary Cemetery here on the island. This outreach will include planning for the service(s), including suggested readings.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, wailing or pain,
for the old order has passed away.
Our sympathies to you.
