In the closing session, John reads a poem, Sandy gives her closing comments, and Fr. John Riccardo walks us through why we can grieve with hope because God hates death so much that He destroyed it. There is time spent in Eucharistic Adoration, a candle lighting ceremony, and a blessing from Fr. John. You as the host parish are then encouraged to move participants to the main sanctuary to experience the power of Eucharistic Adoration, as well as the candle lighting and blessing from your own priest or deacon. You provide music and song. This is a beautiful closing session, and for many, it signifies a transition has begun; they now have the tools to build their bridge to a new and different life, where their loved ones surround them in so great a cloud of witnesses.
