Tom Farrell and Mary Thiel, Catholic Funeral & Cemetery Services, December 7th 2018

Our monthly First Friday Mass and Meeting is Friday, December 7th.

Mass will be celebrated at 7:30 A.M. in the Chapel of St. Edmund Campion, located on the 4th floor of Eckstein Hall (Marquette University Law School). The celebrant will be Fr. Paul Hartmann. Mass will be followed by our meeting and discussion from 8:00-9:00 A.M., which includes a continental breakfast (suggested donation $4.00).

Our speakers will be Tom Farrell and Mary Thiel, from Catholic Funeral & Cemetery Services, (CFCS) a ministry of the Archdiocese. CFCS provides outreach and education about the importance of pre-planning and the Catholic Church’s teachings on the Order of Christian Funerals and Cremation. Mary’s and Tom’s talk will include how lawyers can help clients protect their wishes, as well as some discussion of the Church’s teachings on cremation, and the relatively new topic of green burial. Bring your questions!

Limited complimentary visitor parking is available in the Eckstein Hall underground parking structure, 11th Street level, between Wisconsin Avenue and Clybourn Street. The parking system that requires two tickets to exit. Enter the lot, pull a ticket, and find an open parking space. Once parked, follow signs to the elevator. Take the elevator to the main floor, which opens to the foyer, and go to the Welcome Desk to get your "chaser" ticket so that you will not have to pay for parking when exiting. In other words, for free parking, when you exit you will need both the ticket you pulled when you entered and the "chaser" ticket the Welcome Desk gave you.
