After the death of a loved one, the family may contact the Parish Office to inform us. The family’s then needs to contact their funeral home of choice. The Director from the funeral home will contact the Parish Office to arrange for a funeral liturgy.

The Parish Office, working with the funeral home, will additionally schedule a meeting with the family at the Parish Office. There is a twofold purpose to this meeting. First, it provides an opportunity for clergy, along with the parish staff, to work with the family in choosing the readings, music, gift bearers, readers etc. and to answer any questions the family may have. Secondly, it enables us to learn more about their loved one, so that the funeral liturgy and homily will be both personal and appropriate to the family and to the deceased.
