Information on funerals and Mass of Remembrance
Funerals at Mary Immaculate Church
- Mary Immaculate will provide you with a booklet (Through Death to Life) that will assist you in selecting readings and prayers for the service.
- Along with the readings, there are various times during the Mass when family and friends may serve; as lectors or gift bearers. These people do not need to be Catholic.
- Please make your choices and return the Selection Sheet to Mary Immaculate at least 48 hours prior to the funeral.
- Mary Immaculate will provide you with a list of appropriate songs to choose from. Four songs are needed: Entrance, Offertory, Communion and Recessional. If you wish to include a song that is not listed, please contact Thomas Woods, Director of Music. (see contact info.)
- If the family desires, a family member or friend may share some Words of Remembrance at the end of the funeral. Please keep the time to 3-5 minutes. We recommend remarks are written down.
- Mary Immaculate will provide, at no cost to you, a printed worship aid for the service.
