About Church Life

Funerals

If you have lost someone recently, may we offer you our deepest condolences.

It may be a small comfort to know that the departed and those remaining are always in our prayers.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.

If you want to talk to someone about your loss, funeral arrangements in general, or perhaps to discuss your own plans, please feel free to contact the Parish Office by phone or use our contact form to make an appointment.

Funeral Arrangements

Funeral arrangements are usually made by the funeral directors engaged. They are well aware of the requirements for a Catholic funeral and work with you and the minister who will be conducting the service.

Most of us are rarely asked to choose music for a church service and may not know where to start. To help choose music that is appropriate to a Catholic funeral, the Catholic Liturgy Office of England & Wales have put together some suggestions in the Order of Christian Funerals: Some Music Suggestions.

Some ideas for readings have also been provided in the Order of Christian Funerals: Lectionary Readings.

Further information and a possible plan for the Funeral Rite can be found in this guide from the Catholic Liturgy Office.

Of course, please feel free to contact us for guidance or discuss your requirements.
