A funeral marks the close of a person's life on earth.  It is an opportunity for family, friends and colleagues to express their grief, to give thanks for the life of their loved one and to commend them to God's keeping.










If you have any questions about arranging a funeral at St. Benedict's or would like to talk to someone following the loss of a loved one, please contact Keith Heleiwell  



Psalm 23 - The Lord is my Shepherd

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.

He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters;

He restores my soul.  He leads me in right paths for his name's sake.

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff - they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.
