Funeral Preparation

Preparing for Eternal Life

We would be honored to help you during this time of grief and sorrow.  It is a privilege to help our parishioners plan this beautiful day which includes a church visitation one hour prior to the Mass, the funeral Mass and a luncheon. 

“In the face of death, the Church confidently proclaims that God has created each person for eternal life and that Jesus, the Son of God, by his death and resurrection, has broken the chains of sin and death that bound humanity”. – Order of Christian Funerals
