OUR PARISH BOOK OF THE DEAD
November is the month that we are asked to remember and pray for our dead. We have a parish custom at Saints JFX Parish. Names of former parishioners and family members have been inscribed into a beautiful Parish Book of the Dead. This book is displayed in the sanctuary during the month of November. We are now adding the names of those who died during this current year. Our list comes from our Sunday Prayers of the Faithful. If we missed someone from your family, you can have them added to the Book by emailing the office at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 847-256-4250 before October 28th.
