My Beloved in Jesus Christ!
I hope that you enjoyed the back to back Catechetical Homilies. Father Carlos’ homily two weeks ago was on Purgatory and my homily last week was on The linkage between our belief in Purgatory and Catholic Funerals. While our Diocese of Colorado Springs is now reprinting the brochure “Funerals in the Catholic Church” , I remembered that you can get it online. Go to our webpage www.stfranciscr.org and on the home page, you will see a box called “My Estate Manager” Click on the link. You will see a well put together site that has lots of great information about End of Life care and managing items after the death of a loved one. Click Start Managing Now, and Click “Managing a Traditional Funeral.” You should see this link and you can download the entire brochure.
I would encourage you to take time to visit this well put together “MY ESTATE MANAGER” website. It has lots of great information on it such as Estate Planning, leaving a Legacy Gift, Medical Advanced Directives, a wonderful pamphlet on the Sacrament of the Sick, Funerals in the Catholic Church and so much more. I was recently on the site to pull out forms for Advanced Directives.
As always if you have any questions on any of these important issues – please let us know!
