Funeral Information

Planning Your Funeral

Jesus has destroyed death by his own living of it. Because He died, we get to live. In a positive spiritual way, death should always be before our eyes. To do this, is to fix your eyes upon eternity which is so much longer than this short life! So, death is about gaining the right perspective. One of the greatest gifts we can give to those who remain is a well-planned funeral. Queen of the Apostles Parish has provided for you the following materials to help you with the many important aspects of funeral planning.

Planning ahead for your Catholic funeral is an important step.  By planning ahead, you can have peace of mind knowing that your funeral will be celebrated according to your wishes and desires as a faithful Catholic. We strongly encourage you to speak to your family about your funeral plans. Most importantly, write them down, making sure that a close relative or friend knows your wishes and has received a copy. Your loved ones can then be spared the burdens and stresses of planning during a time of grief. Both you and your loved ones can be secure in the knowledge that your intentions will be honored. 

Included on this site are some resources to help you start planning for your end of life. They are here to help you think about what your family needs to know, both for your funeral and your estate.
