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 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.
