Funerals and Bereavement


Bereavement Ministry at Our Lady usually begins when a call comes in from the Funeral Home but sometimes from a family member.

The staff at Our Lady works with individuals through all of life’s ups and downs. While the death of an individual brings sadness, it is also seen as the regular process of life. Upon contact with us that a death has occurred, we work with the family to support them in their grief and plan for the funeral.  The Funeral Planning booklet can be downloaded so the family can begin thinking of what Scripture readings and music is desired. See below for this download, or a booklet can be picked up in the office.

Our services include:

    Meeting with the family and planning a funeral
    Providing a Wake Service (prayer service) at the funeral home the day before the  funeral Mass
    Funeral (Mass or Service) with a Funeral Choir assisting family and friends to find voice
    Committal at the graveside
    Luncheon if desired (and if the Parish Hall is available)
