The Blessing of Memories is a service of prayer, scripture and music.

We invite the families of all those whose Funeral Mass we celebrated during the past year. We read off all these names from a scroll that is placed in the front of the church. Each family member is given a candle to light during the service. We dim the lights and have a quiet time of prayer. We invite the families to bring a picture of their loved one. It is a nice quiet time to remember those gone on before us and say “Hello” again to the family.

For the month of November the scroll is placed in the Sanctuary with a lighted candle. There is also a Book of the Dead that folks can write in names of their deceased family and friends.
