Our Ancestors

Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die."

These words of Jesus to Martha, the sister of Lazarus in the Gospel of John contain the hopes all believers. Here we invite you to commemorate the deaths and honor the lives of our sisters who have died in the hope of eternal life.

Well done good and faithful servants!

"Those whom we love and lose are no longer where they were before. They are now wherever we are."
- St. John Chrysostom.
