Planning a Funeral

Funeral planning typically takes place during a meeting between the priest or deacon who will be presiding over the funeral rites and family members of the deceased. If a funeral home is involved, they will assist the family in arranging this meeting. If a funeral home is not involved, the family should contact the parish offices by calling (651) 633-8333 to schedule a meeting to make the necessary arrangements.

People and families are welcome to download the 
Funeral Planning Sheet to begin the planning process prior to meeting with the priest or deacon who will preside over the funeral rites.  No funeral planning is finalized until after a meeting with the presider of the funeral. 

Please note that if you are making funeral preparations well in advance then we may not be able to honor requests for specific personnel.
