It is with deep sadness that we learn of the death of your loved one. The entire parish of Queen of the Universe grieves with you and extends to you our deepest sympathy and prayers. One of the greatest sources of consolation to a family at the time of death is the spiritual support provided by the funeral liturgy. It is through the prayers of the Church, the readings of Sacred Scripture, and celebration of the Eucharist that death is seen not as a end but as a beginning of a new life with God.

If you have any questions as you prepare, please do not hesitate to contact our Director of Liturgical Music, David Westawski, at 267-266-0801 or
