We try to accommodate all funerals which are requested. For that to happen, it is important to contact the parish prior to making any final decisions on funeral times and talk with a priest or one of the pastoral ministers..
For more information on a Catholic understanding funerals, please review the Funeral Booklet.
For more information on funerals at SS. John and Paul, please review the Planning Worksheet and Letter from Pastor.
For funeral readings,Prayers of Faithful and suggested music selections, please review Funeral Readings. Remember to select one reading from the Old Testament and one from the New Testament.
When space is available, we are happy to offer our social hall for a funeral luncheon. Our Funeral Ministry Hospitality team will set up, host, provide coffee, pop and desserts. For more information on having a funeral luncheon at SS. John and Paul, please review Funeral Lunch.
During the month of November, the parish has a special All Souls memorial. The Book of Remembrance is placed by the baptismal font and people are invited to list the names of all their deceased loved ones in that book.
