Saturday, November 4, 2017, at 10:30 a.m. in our church
Fox Funeral Home has arranged to have a Memorial Mass celebrated here at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Church for the specific intentions of those who have passed on this last year. During this Mass we will invite you to light a candle in their memory. We hope you will attend this spiritually uplifting Mass.
Other November Remembrances
We pray for our own beloved family members who have died and remember those who have no one to pray for them.
November is customarily a time to visit the graves of loved ones and pray for them at the site of their resting place. The Catholic Cemeteries office can assist us in choosing a gravesite or crypt where we would like to be buried. Contact Catholic Cemeteries by calling 718-894-4888 or going to www.ccbklyn.org.
It is also time to remember that the cremains (ashes) of our loved ones deserve a final resting place. While the Church is not opposed to cremation, it instructs that cremated remains of a body should be treated with the same respect given to the human body from which they come. Read this Catholics & Cremation Q & A from the Bishops of New York State.
