Sacraments & Celebrations

Funerals

When a member of the parish dies, the funerals rites are celebrated for the deceased. Normally, a Catholic Funeral has three parts. First, the Vigil Service, sometimes called the Wake Service, which takes place at the funeral home. Second, the Funeral Mass, which takes place at the church. Third, the Committal Service, which takes place at the graveside. Arrangements for a funeral are usually made through a local funeral director who contacts the parish to arrange dates and times for the Catholic funeral rites. For more information about funerals or to seek information about special situations, please contact the parish office.
