For a Catholic funeral, please contact the parish office weekdays between 9:00am-4:00pm. A Catholic who dies is to be given funeral rites. Upon the death of a loved one, families are asked to contact the parish as soon as possible and before any arrangements are made with a mortuary for liturgical services. On initial contact with the bereaved family, a priest or other minister from the parish will arrange to visit the family or meet with them to offer condolences in person, to pray with them (if this is acceptable to them), to prepare, and plan with them for the rites of burial.

This ancient tradition of the Catholic Church presenting of a child to God, and to the Church, stems from a strong desire by parents to ask for divine protection for their newborn, thanksgiving for a safe childbirth, and blessing and safe for the mother. Ideally a presentation blessing can be given during a regular Sunday Mass; a regular Sunday stipend is expected. Contact the parish office to schedule or email email@example.com.
