How Tobit's Got Its Name
The name comes from a story in the book of Tobias (also know as the Book of Tobit) which tells of how Tobias would remove slain bodies from the street, carry them home until nightfall, then bury them in the dark of night despite criticism and threat of death because he "feared God more than man." (Tobit 2:3-9)
The mission of Tobit's is to give respect to fellow parishioners who have recently died by our attendance at prayer and funeral services. As a comfort to the sorrowing by our presence and prayers.
How We Fulfill Our mission
We fulfill out mission by attending Rosarys and Funerals of deceased parishioners. When a death occurs in our parish the information concerning the services is passed to the chairperson. A calling chain is used to notify each person of the dates, time and locations of the Rosary and Funeral. Members attend Rosarys and Funerals when they can.
