In the midst of life, we are in death, though we are not without hope.  Sometimes death is sudden or unexpected.  At other times, it comes at the end of a long struggle.  Regardless, those left behind have to deal with grief, mourning, and more often than not, the planning of the funeral. In this time of sorrow, there may be questions, pain and uncertainty.  The clergy at St. John’s are available to be a support both for the dying and for their family and friends, to journey with you and to assist you both with the details of the funeral service and with pastoral care.  Please contact the church at (613) 283-1261.  May the peace of Christ be with you at this time.
