Funeral Mass

It was such a beautiful Mass. We were so blessed to have our family friend Fr. John McDermott, SJ to celebrate the Mass along with Fr. Bob Romeo, our Pastor, Fr. Anthony Refalo, our dear friend from Malta, and Fr. Peter Dugandzic, Pastor of Blessed Sacrament (Valley Stream, NY) and a precious member of our family.

What a beautiful event this was; awesome really. The Mass of the Dead in the Extraordinary Form. A Low Mass with father praying in a low voice with the angelic voice of Alexio Chang chanting polyphonic from the choir loft. It was so uplifting for everyone, such a great dedication to the memory of Amanda and the most exquisite way to honor our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.
