The first step is to contact the mortuary of your choice to handle the necessary arrangements.
The mortuary will contact the church office staff and schedule a time for the Mass or Service. As a general rule, the funeral mass for a Catholic is celebrated in his or her own parish church.
Once the date and time have been determined, the coordinator will contact you and schedule an appointment to meet. Prior to the meeting, a Funeral Planning Book may be picked up at the church office to assist you with some of the details.
At the meeting, the coordinator will help you select the readings and music, as well as answer any questions you may have about the funeral service.
