Book of Remembrance

Book of RemembranceThe Book of Remembrance is an established feature in Holy Family Church and is increasingly being utilised to record the names of parishioner’s friends and family who have died as a way to help commemorate their anniversary. The Book has a page for each day of the year and is kept in a locked cabinet inside the Holy Family Church. It is located below the picture of St Mary MacKillop on your left as you enter the church. The Book may be illuminated by plugging in the three-pin plug and turning on the power switch at the base of the cabinet.

Instead of bringing flowers to a funeral, perhaps you could gift an entry in the Book to a friend or loved one who has had a recent bereavement. New names are entered into the Book by a calligrapher at regular intervals. Payment of $20 per name can be made via our website or by Qkr! app or by cash.

In addition to a plaque in the Columbarium, the Book of Remembrance offers a permanent and reverent means to remember anniversaries of those we love. Download a Single Name form or a Multiple Names form or contact the Parish Office.
