Let’s Have a Little Something and Talk about Funeral Planning

It is not easy to walk through the maze of funeral planning. There are many options, many ways and many different laws to consider. There are 50 things that must be done (and probably many more). Tidd Funeral Home will sponsor a seminar to help you with all of that. Terry Thomas, a parishioner at St. Brigid of Kildare, and a licensed funeral director along with Dale Dunne, a pre-need specialist at Tidd will lead us through the intricacies of funeral planning and answer your questions.

Monday, January 14, 2018
7:00 – 8:30 PM in Hendricks Hall (Berry Room)

There is no charge, but please register on the parish website, so we have enough materials for
everyone. —Sister Teresa Tuite, OP

Let’s Have Dinner and Talk About Death

Let’s Have Dinner and Talk About Death

November 15, 2018
Immke Room in Hendricks Hall
6:00 – 8:30 PM
RSVP by October 15, 2018
This might be the most unusual dinner invitation I have ever sent, but bear with me, I think we are in for a remarkable experience.  I would be honored if you would take the time to join Msgr. Hendricks, attorney Michael Zaino, a physician, and me for dinner and to engage in this conversation. They will offer a few words that will hopefully prompt us into some important conversations.  We will explore the Catholic view of dying and death, options for the end of life care, and advanced directives according to the State of Ohio.
Talking about death and dying can be uncomfortable and difficult, yet perhaps no conversations are more profound or necessary for all of us. End-of-life decisions are among the most challenging we will ever face. This is not meant to be a morbid conversation, but instead a very human one where we consider what we want, both in life and during its end and look at it in the context of our faith and values.
Register online here or call the Parish Office. Each participant must complete a registration form.  Online registration begins October 1 at 9 AM and ends October 14 at midnight. Space is limited to 64 people so don’t delay in registering.
Sr. Teresa Tuite O.P.
