"I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die."
Jesus Christ, John 11:25-26
Death is one of the hardiest realities for us to face as human beings, but Christian hope is rooted in the truth that the love of God has proved stronger than Death itself. When Jesus died on the Cross, He died for us all, and when He rose again from the dead, He offered us life that will last even after death.
Therefore, we are still united to all those who have died through the love of Jesus Christ, and one day we will all rise again from the dead and live forever free from sin, pain, and death. Becuase of this we pray for those who have died. This is a great act of love which expresses our union with them and helps them as the journey to God who loves them.
Our sincerest condolences to you if you have recently lost a loved one, we are here to support you in this difficult time. The Sacred Heart Church is open 9a.m.-6p.m. everyday if you would like space to pray or light a candle for your loved one. To arrange a funeral, you will need to get in contact with a funeral director who will take the lead on organising the service. They will get in contact with us and then we will arrange a meeting with you.
If you would like to talk to a priest about your own funeral arrangements or you are troubled by death and just want someone to talk to, then please do not hesitate to get in contact with us.
