When a loved one dies, the task of making arrangements can seem overwhelming. Notre Dame Staff and volunteers are here to serve you, your family and friends during this time of planning. Once a funeral director has notified the church of a death, our Pastoral Associate and Bereavement Ministers will assist you to develop an authentic and dignified vigil, wake and funeral service for your loved one. To schedule your planning meeting, please contact: Dr. Doug Muir, 630-601-1764; firstname.lastname@example.org.
As Catholics, we affirm that Christ has conquered death. Through this lens we celebrate,
even in our grief, the passing of one who has died. "This saying is trustworthy:
If we have died with Him we shall also live with Him." 2 Timothy 2:11
Bereaved Person’s Prayer
We seem to give our loved ones back to you,
Lord. You gave them to us. But just as you
did not lose them in the giving, neither do we
lose them in the return.
You don’t give in the same way that the world
gives. What you give you don’t take away.
You have taught us that what is yours is ours
also, if we are yours.
Life is eternal, Lord, and your love is
undying. And death is only a horizon. And
a horizon is nothing but the limits of our sight.
Lift us up strong, Son of God, that we may
see farther. Cleanse our eyes that we may see
more clearly. Draw us closer to yourself, that
we may find ourselves closer to our loved ones
who are with you.
And while you prepare a place for them
Prepare us also for that happy place
where you are and where we hope to be –
