The funeral Mass is the central liturgical celebration for the deceased. At the time of death, either the funeral director or a family member may contact the parish office (969-0004) to schedule a funeral service, ordinarily celebrated at a Mass here in the church.  Our pastoral team will assist families with planning the funeral rites. Family members are invited to take an active role in planning the funeral liturgy.  Planning may include selection of readings for the Mass and suggestions for music.  A planning worksheet, suggestions for music, and options for readings will be provided.
