  • Normally the funeral director of your choice will contact us to arrange the time and day for the funeral Mass.
  • Normally funeral Masses are held at 10:00 AM and 11:15 AM (if there is a second funeral).
  • Our Bereavement Minister will contact you to arrange a meeting with members of the family to assist you and to answer any questions you may have.

 Our Lady of the Woods Prayer Garden

The Prayer Garden at our parish sits behind the statue of Mary. You can see it through both the chapel and the newly renovated sitting room (which was the coat room). Additionally, we invite you to walk through the garden and view the stones our parishioners have purchased. If you would like to purchase a stone, please complete THIS FORM (link) and submit it to the parish office.
