Passing of Flora Azar

Dear Parishioners of OLOP:

I received the sad news that Flora Azar passed away in Naples, Florida, surrounded by her daughters Janine and Claudette. Funeral arrangements are being handled by Saunders-Dwyer Funeral Home. I have included the link for the obituary to this email.

Her Divine Liturgy will be celebrated on Tuesday December 6th at 10 AM at Our Lady of Purgatory Church. A private family burial will take place in St. Mary’s Cemetery. Visiting hours will be held on Monday December 5th from 4-7 PM at the Saunders-Dwyer Home for Funerals, 495 Park St., New Bedford.

We ask Almighty God to welcome Flora into His kingdom and may her soul rest in peace. Allah yerhamma.
