A special ‘thank you’ to St. Christopher Parish for hosting Mass of Remembrance

I am writing this letter to thank the staff and members of St. Christopher Parish in Indianapolis for holding a special Mass of Remembrance on April 16 for the deceased of St. Anthony and St. Christopher parishes at St. Christopher Church.

Father Paul Shikany was the celebrant, and there was special music to highlight the evening’s theme. It was indeed an “evening of celebration.” Father Shikany spoke about God’s love and plans for us. After the liturgy, there was a social and reception downstairs in the Damascus Room.

The evening was especially meaningful for me as my mother-in-law had recently passed away at a local nursing home. She was from Shanghai, China, but had lived with us and brought that sense of Hoosier hospitality to the local community by helping my wife with making balloon animals at A Caring Place and at the St. Christopher summer festival. She also helped at St. Christopher’s lemon shake‑up booth.

My dad also recently passed away on Easter Sunday. He will be remembered for his faith, passing on the importance of how character matters, and for making people laugh.
