Planning a Christian Funeral

The Vigil, the Funeral Mass and the Committal each have distinct purposes in the journey toward healing and wholeness.  When we experience the death of a loved one, we have the rituals and prayers of our church to guide us. This workshop will assist you in making choices about your funeral or that of someone close to you. 

Come with your questions about the liturgies for the Vigil, the Funeral Mass and Committal as well as the services & options offered at a funeral home and the cemeteries. Representatives from the parish, a funeral home, and the cemeteries will participate.

For ongoing workshop schedule please visit Catholic Cemeteries of the Diocese of San Jose.
