Planning a Funeral Mass at SS. Peter and Paul Parish
The death of a loved one is a very difficult time in life and all of us here at SS. Peter and Paul Parish share the sorrow and grief that you feel at this moment.
Like any celebration of the Sacred Mass, the essential purpose of the funeral is the worship of God, the proclamation of the Gospel, and the celebration of the paschal mystery. Secondarily, the Mass is offered for the repose of the soul of the deceased and should invite prayer for the judgment they face, and for their ultimate and happy repose after any necessary purification.
It is our great hope that the prayers of the Funeral Mass will be meaningful and express your own faith and that of your loved one.
The Funeral Home will contact the Parish to make arrangements. A booklet has been put together to help you to plan and be a part of the Funeral of your loved one.
The booklet is quite easy to use. Simply return this booklet after filling in the information requested. The booklet needs to be returned to the priest officiating at the Funeral before the Funeral Mass. This will allow us to make all the preparations necessary in a timely manner.
May God strengthen you in this difficult time.
