Rooted in Faith


With LIFE NOTICES, we announce those in our parishes that entered into a New Life.  Keep them, their families, and friends in your prayers.

At the death of a Christian, whose life of faith was begun in the waters of Baptism and strengthened at the Eucharistic table, the Church intercedes on behalf of the deceased because of its confident belief that death is not the end, nor does it break the bonds forged in life. The Church also ministers to the sorrowing and consoles them in the funeral rites with the comforting Word of God and the Sacrament of the Eucharist.  (From "The Order of Christian Funerals")

With sadness, the faith community of St. Joan of Arc announces the death of Arlene Moyle.  Arlene died on May 7 after a long battle with bone cancer. She was a very active member of the parish having facilitated small faith groups and bible studies. Please keep her children and her entire family in prayer.  Her Mass of Christian Burial will take place at a later date. May she be welcomed into the Communion of Saints.
