Funeral Planning


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
