"It is my Father's will that whoever sees the Son and believes in him should have eternal life,
and that I should raise that person up on the last day.
~John 6:40


In the face of death, the Catholic Church confidently proclaims that God has created each person for eternal life and that Jesus, by his death and resurrection, has destroyed death forever.

A Catholic funeral, like all funerals, is a time of sadness and mourning.  However, in the Catholic faith there is joy in the belief that a funeral represents the passing of the beloved into eternal life.  The Catholic Church has many traditions concerning funerals and funeral preparation.

At the time of death, the Church Parish may be contacted before a funeral home is called.  Some Catholics will opt out of conventional funeral home services in favor of Catholic services.  You can be sure that the Catholic Church will handle the funeral with utmost respect for the deceased and the grieving family.  A Priest and other Church figures will minister to the grieving friends and family in whatever ways are needed.
