Sad Tidings
Lorenzo A. Biacan 1936-2022

It is with deep sadness to announce the death of our dear parishioner Lorenzo, father of parishioner Heidi Wan and father in law of our Warden, Cherry Biacan.

A visitation will be at Wimberg's Funeral Home in Linwood: Friday, January 21 from 12-2pm, the Holy Rosary will be recited at 1:30pm.

The Funeral Mass will be offered at Christ Church on Saturday, January 22 at 11am (in-person and live-streamed)

O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered: Accept our
prayers on behalf of your servant Lorenzo., and grant him an
entrance into the land of light and joy, in the fellowship of
your saints; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and
reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for
ever. Amen.
