I have very sad news. As you may have heard, Grace Sowa died on Monday, January 17th. She was a second-year biology student from North Kingstown, Rhode Island, USA. Her obituary can be found here.
Her funeral Mass will celebrated at her home parish on Tuesday, February 1st at 10:00am ET. Here are the live-stream links:
On Sunday, February 6th our 4:30pm Newman Centre Guelph community Mass at the Basilica of Our Lady Immaculate will be offered for the repose of Grace’s soul and the consolation of her family and friends. You are welcome to invite non-Catholics to attend. All I ask is that you accompany them in the church and explain to them that they won’t be able to receive Holy Communion. (Enter the side lift door and go up.)
I want you to know that Ania is working with the Multi-Faith Resource Team (MFRT) to plan an online memorial that will be similar to a funeral reception. It will be an opportunity for friends to connect and share memories of Grace. The date, time and link will be provided as soon as they become available.
Please pray for Grace’s family and friends in their time of loss. May she rest in peace.
