The priests and parishioners of Immaculate Conception parish extend our deepest sympathy to you at the death of your loved one and wish to offer you our support in whatever way we can be of assistance.
We encourage the family's participation in the funeral liturgy. Guidelines have been created to help you through the planning process along with a planning sheet that will offer suggestions with the practical details (the Guidelines / Planning Sheet is available in pdf format). Family involvement may include:
If you choose not to do any of the above, that is perfectly all right. The priest will take care of it. If you wish to give some facts about the deceased, please submit these, along with the planning sheet, to the priest at the wake service the day before the funeral liturgy.
Two members of our Ministry of Consolation will visit the wake to help you in planning the Liturgy.
Thank you and God bless you,
Rev. Monsignor Fernando Ferrarese
