Upcoming Funerals

The following Funerals are scheduled at St. Madeleine Sophie Parish:

Charles Martin, funeral Mass on July 1 at 10 am

David Gilroy, funeral Mass on July 8 at 10 am

Ruth Kidd, funeral Mass on July 15 at 11 am

From Ruth’s family: 

Ruth was a Master Gardener (among her many gifts).  She’d love to have you go to your garden or wild space around your house and bring one favorite flower or one branch (no giant limbs please) to place near the altar  — you’ll see where.  The flower shops will not be happy, but no flower arrangements are necessary.  

Church address: 

4400 130th Place S.E.
