Film Review




The St. Lawrence community extends its prayers and sympathies on the loss of your loved one. The death of a family member can leave us feeling at a loss or empty. While the death of a family member or a loved one causes sorrow, the Church brings hope in eternal life and consolation to the living by proclaiming our faith in Jesus Christ who conquered sin and death.

Catholic belief in death as the entrance into eternity, hope in the resurrection, recognition of the value of prayer for the deceased, reverence for the body which remains and the sense of mystery and sacredness which surround the end of earthly life are all reflected in the Church’s care for the deceased and the family and community of faith that survives them. Private prayer, united with the liturgical rites of the Church, help us to share in the Lord’s paschal mystery and to hope for eternal union with God.
