After a funeral director has been contacted but before any arrangements have been made public, the funeral director will contact the Parish Office in order to arrange for funeral time and/or vigil service. All aspects of parish funeral liturgy planning requires the participation and approval of trained parish personnel.
The Funeral Planning Ministry endeavors to provide consolation, support and guidance to the family of a deceased parishioner. A team meets at the church with the family to assist with preparations, planning, and coordinating of the funeral liturgy. Additionally, they meet the family at the church and assist the family before, during, and after the liturgy.
