Funerals at All Saints and the care of those grieving

If death appears imminent or if a loved one from All Saints has recently died, please contact Fr. Scott at 478-217-2113 **. Last Rites can be a profound comfort for those near death. Soon after death, we’ll seek to care for family by setting up a mutually good time to pray, remember, and plan.The funeral, a significant worship service, seeks to both honor God and the life of the one who has died. Fr. Scott’s initial gathering with friends and family helps to put the many moving pieces together. Much care and thought goes into each funeral service

 

All Saints Crisis Committee

All Saints has an active Crisis Committee that provides a meal or a reception for a families that have lost a loved one. The chair of All Saints Crisis Committee is Ellen Strait. She works both with Fr. Scott and All Saints parishioners to provide either a meal or set up a reception following the funeral. After the family has reached out to the Church to let us know about the death of a loved one, Fr. Scott connects with Ellen. Ellen will reach out to you to see if either a meal or a reception following the funeral is the next correct step. If you would like to be a part of this important ministry of care please contact Ellen at straitl@cox.com
