Funeral Planning

Liturgy

We offer choices of readings and music. Family or friends can participate in the Presentation of the Gifts. Funeral booklets and our Parish Resurrection Choir are available for each Mass. Contact the parish staff for any special assistance you may require. In addition, the Martha & Mary Ministry is available upon request to prepare and serve a reception in the parish center following the burial of a loved one. This can be a great support to the family. Just contact the parish office to check on the availability of the parish center and to make arrangements.

For the convenience of the bereaved, the following will be contacted by the parish office for a funeral at Holy Cross Church:

  • Organist
  • Resurrection Choir
  • Greeters hand out the funeral booklets and are also the Ministers of Communion.
  • Maintenance
  • Altar Servers
  • Luncheons

Mass of Remembrance

Holy Cross Church invites you to a special Mass of Remembrance

on Saturday, October 31, 2020 at 10:00 AM

This Mass will be offered in memory of our loved ones who have passed away during this past year. We would  like to have you and your family attend this celebration. However, in light of COVID-19 we require masks and social distancing. Our capacity is limited, so a reservation is required. You are also invited to view the Mass streamed live on our parish website ~ www.holycrossrochester.org.

As a special remembrance of your loved ones, we invite you to bring a picture of them to be placed on the Table of Remembrance (to be taken home with you after this Mass).

Please let us know by Monday, October 26 how many will be attending. It will help facilitate our planning for this Mass. Please call the Parish Office, 663-2244, or email rholycross@dor.org to leave your name and approximate number of people planning to attend. 

In Christ,

Very Rev. William G. Coffas, VF, Pastor

Holy Cross Church + Our Mother of Sorrows Church

 

Our God of Consolation, in His unending love and mercy, has turned the darkness of death into the dawn of new life.
