In Memoriam

Dear Friends:

It is with sadness that I share with you the deaths of Fr. Ed Harnsberger on Memorial Day morning and Les Stephens in the early morning hours Tuesday. We meet the loss of these loved ones with deep faith in the Resurrection of Christ: those who believe in me, even though they die, will live! Our prayers and love go out to Margaret Harnsberger and Candy Stephens and their families.

Fr. Ed was a member of the Society of Mary in our parish. This Saturday all are invited to pray the Rosary at 7:45 AM as we celebrate the Feast of the Visitation. Let's offer up this prayer for Fr. Ed, Les, and Frank Alvarez (service last Saturday). May they rest in peace!

No times of services have been planned yet. You might attend the Rosary at 7:45 AM, the Mass at 8:30 AM, and/or the Contemplative prayer session at the House of Prayer at 9:30 AM (Fr. Ed and Margaret regularly take part). These times of prayer will be a good way to begin to remember our loved ones who have entered eternal life.


Update: The Memorial Mass for Les will take place this Saturday at 8:30 AM. Rest in Peace! --Nancy
