In that biblical, Trinitarian manner, they say funerals come in threes – that is, three in close proximity to each other.
Indeed, we have had a number of burial services of late, which is not unusual in a sizable parish. Baptizing, marrying and burying the faithful is a blessed part of what we do. Helping people get a proper start in life and marriage is the church’s obligation. Being with people at the end of life, with assurance and dignity, is in our DNA.
