COMMUNION FOR THE SICK
The pastor and Extra-ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are happy to bring communion to the sick,
elderly, or home bound, who are unable to attend Church.

CATHOLIC FUNERAL GUIDELINES
National Conference of Catholic Bishops has issued the following guidelines for funerals:
the ancient traditions of humankind and the Catholic community, the Church asks us to celebrate the funeral of those gone
forth in a liturgy with their bodily remains present. This shows proper and appropriate respect for the vessel indwelt
by the Holy Spirit and used throughout their journey of faith her on Earth. This is the body that will be raised up
in glory by Our Lord at the end of time. This funeral Liturgy usually takes place in the Church at the celebration of
the Eucharist. Following this celebration, the Church recommends the respectful internment or entombment of the
However, the church also recognizes the desire of some to use cremation as the preferred method of disposition. In view
of this desire, the church recommends that cremation take place AFTER the funeral Liturgy. Following the cremation,
the ashes should be buried or entombed.
If significant reason to depart from these guidelines exist, reasonable accommodations may be made. Any modified arrangements
should be discussed with a priest. You can call the pastor with questions regarding actual funeral arrangements before
the need actually arises.
