"Enter the desert..."


The funeral rites of the Catholic Church are rooted in the baptismal promise of new life in the sharing of the glory of Christ’s Resurrection. The funeral rites traditionally consist of a Vigil Service, The Mass of Christian Burial, and the Graveside Service. Adaptations to these norms are made according to family circumstances and the pastoral needs of the deceased and family.

Please call the parish office so that we may direct you as to what your first steps would be to schedule a funeral Mass.

Please note that if your family is planning on a cremation, we ask that you call the parish office for scheduling when you are already in possession of the ashes.
