Notifying Christ the King About Recent Deaths

In the event of the death of a loved one, we want to pray for the deceased at Sunday Masses and announce the death in the bulletin.  The normal way to inform the parish is to call the main office (734-665-5040) and leave the following information:

  • Name of the caller.
  • Name of the deceased.
  • Relationship of the deceased to the caller.
  • Correct pronunciation of the name.
  • Immediate relation to be included in the petition; e.g. Father of Joe Smith, or Sister of Ann Jones.

When a death occurs at a time when normal communication channels will not allow the parish office to process the information in a timely way, (e.g. after business hours on Friday) and you would like the deceased included in the Prayers of the Faithful that weekend, please let Fr. Ed or a deacon know in person before the weekend Mass you are attending.
