We encourage families of deceased active members of our community to request the rite of Christian Burial in our church for their loved ones. In any situation with unusual circumstances. please contact the pastor for help in making the funeral arrangements. The clergy are also willing to provide services at the funeral home for non Catholic members of our parish families or for inactive Catholics. The ladies of St. Monica's Guild provide funeral dinners as a service to members of our community. Information regarding this is available elsewhere in this booklet. Those who make pre-arrangements with a funeral director may also wish to consult the clergy for help in planning their funeral service.
