At the funeral liturgy, the Church gathers with the family and friends of the deceased to give praise and thanks to God for Christ's victory over sin and death, to commend the deceased to God's tender mercy and compassion, and to seek strength in the proclamation of the Paschal Mystery.
It is never easy to say goodbye to someone we have loved. Our parish community and staff are here to support you and your family as you plan or pre-plan a celebration of life. They will guide you through the process and be on hand the day of the service.
We are here to listen, to help you understand the rituals that are used by the Church and help with planning a funeral Mass.
To plan a funeral, please contact Deacon Chris Murphy, Pastoral Associate, at 847.864.1185 x242 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
