Funerals

The Parish pastoral team works with the family in planning the details of the funeral.

Planning a funeral is a four way discussion between the family, the church, the funeral director and the cemetery.

The Rite of Christian Funerals allows great involvement for the family in choosing appropriate readings from Scripture and the various prayers and hymns used for the celebration of a funeral as well as various types of involvement by family and friends in the celebration itself.

Families or a funeral director will normally make contact with the Parish to determine the date and time of the funeral. The Parish pastoral team will work with you in planning the details of the Funeral itself.
