If you need to arrange a funeral for a loved one, you first need to approach a Funeral Director.
The priest will help you select appropriate readings and religious music for the Mass. Family members are encouraged to be involved in the various parts of the liturgy, whether that is reading, bringing up gifts or being involved with the music.
Funerals take place on weekdays at a time convenient for the family. On Sundays funerals take place during either the 9.30am in the church of the Assumption or 11am Mass the church of the Immaculate Conception.
After the funeral
Supporting those who have been bereaved through a time when there are so many adjustments to be made is an important part of the Church’s ministry. The parish team will visit with the family in the period after the funeral. A month’s mind Mass and 1st anniversary Mass are an important aspect of our tradition.
In November each year a Remembering Service will be held for those who have died that year and all families who have been bereaved are invited to participate in that service.
