“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By His great mercy He has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead”. (1 Pt. 1, 3)
Whenever a death occurs in the family, the parish priest or his assistant is to be informed at the earliest. It is advisable that the day and times of the funeral be fixed with the concerned priest before any formalities like communicating the news through the newspapers is done, and other people informed.
