PREPARING FOR THE FUNERAL MASS  

The loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult things we face in life.  When that loss occurs, or even before, you are encouraged to contact the parish for assistance in planning the Mass or service and burial.  Usually, the parish handles the religious details and the funeral home the preparation and burial.

Our Bereavement Ministry is here to help.  We will assist you in scheduling a funeral and planning the services. After you call the parish to inform us of your loss, you will be directed to one of our Bereavement Ministers who will schedule a meeting with you. The Bereavement Minister will either accompany you through the entire process or you may choose how much of the planning you would like us to handle.  Once you have met with the Bereavement Ministry, you may want to refer to the resources below.  This information will help you make appropriate choices.
