Every November we display in the sanctuary the Book of the Dead, which contains the names of all our loved ones who have died. If you would like to add new names for the book, please put the names on a piece of paper and place it in an envelope entitled “Book of the Dead” or call or email the rectory with the names.

The service will include the Evening Prayer of the Church, music and homily. Family and friends of the deceased as well as all parishioners are invited to attend. A collation will follow the service.
