Thank you for considering St. Patrick’s Catholic Church for the funeral planning needs for yourself or for a loved one. The loss of a family member or friend is a very difficult time for those left behind who are presented with many different choices. This guide can be used at any time. We invite you to use this guide to select the Sacred Readings and Sacred Music included in a Funeral Liturgy. You may bring them with you to your meeting with the trained Compassionate Care Volunteer, who will help you through this difficult time. St. Patrick’s Church Staff is also always available to answer any questions you may have regarding the Church guidelines for a Catholic funeral service.
