To my Annunciation Family,

On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you for your prayers and support following the death of my brother, Christopher. A private funeral will take place for family and close friends on Friday, September 22 at Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church in Solomon’s, Maryland.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to:
Special Olympics Maryland St. Mary’s County
25926 Whiskey Creek Road
Hollywood, MD   20636
Chris, his wife TJ and daughter Courtney were passionate volunteers for this organization in their local community in southern Maryland.

I am sorry that I am not able to personally respond to every email or message that I have received.  However, know that these have been a great source of strength during this difficult time.

May the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace. Amen.

In Christ,
Fr. Stephen Parkes, Pastor
