“MY FINAL WISH” – AN INFORMATION MEETING

Pre-planning funeral arrangements for people of all ages

Tuesday, August 13
at 7 PM in the Saint Julie Parish Hall

Many find it uncomfortable or unsettling to discuss end of life wishes.

St Julie Billiart is offering an opportunity for the community and their families to learn in a loving and practical way several necessary decisions or considerations required when someone dies. Our intent is to help you ensure that your wishes are communicated and understood while easing the burden on your family by doing some pre-planning; it can make difficult decisions much less difficult and act as a final gesture of love.

We will begin with a short prayer and informative presentations; topics for pre-planning, preparing a funeral liturgy, burial options available from Catholic cemeteries, legal concerns and funeral arrangements. Fr. Lou Tylka along with representatives from the Archdiocese of Chicago Catholic Cemeteries, attorneys who deal with wills and estate planning and several local funeral directors will be on hand to answer any questions.

Often one’s final wishes evolve over time and may even change. The expressing of your intentions is of great comfort to your family no matter how young or old you are. Join us for “My Final Wish” and begin the process that gives you and your family peace of mind. “My Final Wish” will be held on Tuesday, August 13 at 7 PM in the Saint Julie Parish Hall. Saint Julie Billiart Catholic Church is located at 7399 W 159th Street, Tinley Park, Illinois 60477
