We know the death of a loved is a tremendous loss. It is important that the family and relatives of the deceased are invited to help plan the funeral service. By following the planning sheet you can select the prayers, readings, and other texts from the Through Death to Life booklet (which the Church Office will provide), as well as the music from the Music Suggestions sheet.
The family/friends are then asked to meet with the priest presiding at the funeral/memorial or a member of the pastoral staff to review those selections.
If family members or friends will be sharing remarks of remembrance, there is also a sheet to help guide the speaker while preparing.
These materials can either be viewed or printed from this page or you can pick them up at the Church Office.
