Funerals

Funerals

The sadness of death should give way in our liturgy to the promise of resurrected life. Our celebration of a person’s life should reflect our conviction that in Jesus Christ we have life beyond life. The Cathedral is pleased to offer its parishioners and friends the complete rites as a means of consolation for the living and grace filled assistance for the deceased. These rites, which include a funeral Mass and the possibility of a vigil in the church or funeral home, are most properly celebrated in the parish church of the deceased, in the presence of their faith community.
