Funerals and Memorial Services
The loss of a loved one is a time of grief and mourning and the Catholic Funeral Mass is an important part of that process. The Funeral Mass not only celebrates the life of the one we lost, but also the presence of the Risen Lord who promises us that death is not the end.
Most commonly, family members plan the funeral service with help from our staff. If you wish to have a funeral at the Church of St. Francis of Assisi, please inform your funeral director of this. They in turn will contact us and begin the process of planning the service.
Oftentimes people feel the need to have a special service in memory of a loved one outside the normal circumstances of an actual funeral Mass. We are here and happy to assist family, friends or co-workers hold a Mass/Service in memory of someone lost.
