The loss of a loved one is likely the most difficult experience any of us undergo. Please contact the parish office at 833-2600 as soon as possible for assistance planning a funeral. Area funeral homes should notify the parish before making any arrangements to coordinate schedules.
Preplanning funerals with the parish can be a real gift to your family in a time of sorrow. Each year the parish offers preplanning workshops to review the options for Church rituals at the time of death. Considerations for all families include: Visitation hours and location; Funeral Mass readings, music and family participation; final committal prayer at the cemetery; parish luncheons; and other individual family needs.
Once a year on All Souls Day – The Commemoration of the Faithful Departed – November 2, the whole Church prays for all those who have gone before us marked with the sign of faith. The parish celebrates this special day with an evening candle-light Mass. Throughout the month of November we have a special display honoring those we have lost in the past year.
