Dear Alumni, Parents and Friends of Creighton Prep,
When a loved one or friend dies, our connection with them never really ends. In the Catholic tradition, the darkening days of November are a time in which we slow down to remember our inseparable connection to those who have died. Even more, we remember that our faith promises that the separation is not forever; God’s promise is that in Christ’s victory, every tear will be wiped away and everything is being made new (Rev. 21).
We thank you for joining us in prayer recently to remember your loved ones and for all the loved ones of the Prep community.
Looking ahead to our planned liturgy in 2023, we invite you to join us for Mass on Sunday, November 12, 2023. The purpose of this event is to honor our former students who have died during the calendar year (between the dates of October 1, 2022 and September 30, 2023). However, we also encourage alumni, family and friends to join us to celebrate the lives of these and other loved ones who have died.
Whether you are able to attend or not, we treasure the opportunity to pray for your loved ones at our school’s daily liturgy. You can help us do this by using the form below to send us the names of your deceased loved ones and friends. We will place all the names of these loved ones at the altar in the Skinner Chapel during the month of November and pray for them daily during our community Eucharist.
These prayers and Masses are our gift to you. Please do not include an offering when you return this to us. It is our privilege to minister to you in this way.
May God bless you now and always. We are grateful you are a part of the Creighton Prep community.
In God’s love,
Fr. Matthew Spotts, SJ
