FUNERALS

Every baptized Catholic deserves a Catholic funeral.

“Christians celebrate the funeral rites to offer worship, praise, and thanksgiving to God for the gift of life which has now been returned to God, the author of life and the hope of the just.  The Mass, the memorial of Christ’s death and resurrection, is the principal celebration of the Christian funeral. (Order of Catholic Funerals #5).

If a family member has passed away please contact a funeral home of your choice who will in turn contact us. The priest will then be in touch with you to make the necessary arrangements.

Do you have any other question? Please do not hesitate to ask.
