The Catholic Church strives to support families in the grieving process at the loss of a loved one. A service St. Lawrence parishioners offer at the death of a parishioner is a meal in our Community Room after the funeral Mass and burial. This gives the family members time to be with each other to continue sharing memories of their beloved deceased member and for support. If the family chooses, food can be taken to the funeral home instead of having a meal the day of the funeral.
