Our Lady of Perpetual Help
St. Mary’s, Albany
We, St. Mary’s Parish, are a people responding to Christ’s call to conversion, new life and discipleship with a nurturing Community.
We celebrate this new life in Scripture and the Sacraments of the Roman Catholic tradition.
Our Celebration impels and transforms us to be Spirit filled individuals who can reach out and minister to all people challenging and enabling them to build God’s Kingdom of justice and holiness.

Saturday, October 27th at 9:30am
Just as you plan celebrations for early sacraments, you can also pre-plan your final sending forth – your funeral. Many people wait until the moment is upon them, leaving extra stress on their loved ones. Some people feel that to address the event is to somehow bring it upon you all the quicker.
We would like to dispel some of the fears and misunderstandings about funerals. Please come to our Funeral Pre-planning workshop on Saturday, October 27th from 9:30am-12:30pm in the Gathering Space. There will be speakers to tell us the Church teachings about funerals, what funeral homes, cemeteries, churches and the US Dept. of Veteran Affairs can do for your funeral. There will also be information on estate planning. See the bulletin for more details.
Everyone is welcome!
