Burying the dead is one of the corporal works of mercy, and we carry out this ministry with solemn obligation to provide hope in eternal life and to give comfort to those who mourn.

Mass of Christian Burial

Along with the Reception of the Body, Funeral Liturgy, Rite of Committal and Final Commendation is offered. The parish priest and the funeral home work with the family to personalize the celebration and allow family members a moment to honor their beloved departed.

Christian Burial

For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s.

Romans14:8
