Planning the Funeral Liturgy
Funerals may be scheduled at 10:00 AM, Tuesday through Saturday. Funerals are not permitted on Sundays or on the days of the Paschal Triduum (Holy Thursday, Good Friday, or Holy Saturday). When a funeral Mass has been scheduled, a Bereavement Minister or Staff member will be assigned to contact and assist families in planning the sacramental details of the liturgy (scripture, music, programs).

Selecting Scripture Readings and Music
Families are permitted to select scripture and music which is appropriate for the Liturgy. While the choices are many, we have a packet which will assist you by offering suggestions of the most popularly selected scripture passages and hymns which have proven to be spiritually enriching, comforting and appropriate.

The gathering space on the north side of the building, known as the Tekulve Room in honor of long-time catechist and parishioner Dorothy Tekulve, is available for private and/or public visitations, normally for one hour before the funeral Mass. Please see the link above for Funeral Services Cost for more details.
- Words of Remembrance (Eulogies) my be offered before the Mass begins and may either be delivered in church or in the Tekulve Room. There are no exceptions to this rule.
- No secular or recorded music is permitted during the Mass.
- Additional Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are allowed to participate, but should be serving in that capacity at their own parish.
Saint Aloysius offers the option of memorial worship aids printed for use during the liturgy.
