Preparing Funerals

Preparing funerals can be one of the most difficult things we do. The support of family and friends is vital but sometimes we need more support. The attachments shown here are to help you as you start to think about the funeral. If it is taking place in our parish, then we will soon meet up with you to discuss or explain more but this will give you a head start.

The ‘Planning a Funeral’ document is for everyone having a Catholic Funeral. There is then a choice depending on whether you are choosing a funeral in a Church or crematorium. ‘Planning a Funeral’ might help you with that choice.

The other attachments are self-explanatory. Please contact us if you have any questions.

We do also run a Bereavement Support Group. This is informal and friendly and meets at Sacred Heart on Silver Link Rd every Friday morning. Anyone grieving is welcome.
