The Funeral Booklet is provided to assist you with the planning of a funeral celebrated at Sacred Heart Church.
In the face of death, the Church confidently proclaims that God has created each person for eternal life and that Jesus, the Son of God, by His death and resurrection, have broken the chains of sin and death that bind humanity.
Christians celebrate the funeral rites to offer worship, praise, and thanksgiving to God for the gift of a the life which has now been returned to God, the author of life. The Mass which is the memorial of Christ’s death and resurrection is the principal celebration of the Christian’s funeral. We grieve with you and wish to pray with you for the loss of your loved one and the repose of his/her soul.
We want this sacred celebration of your loved one’s life to be special for you. To this end, we have established this booklet with choices you can make regarding symbols, scriptural readings, and music that best expresses your love and prayers. You are welcome to make as many choices as you wish for the funeral. Just present your choices on the back page and take this to the church office within 5 days before the funeral, or if you have a fax, you may fax it to the Church at (727) 541-2073.
If you have any questions or need guidance, please call the church office (727) 541-4447 to schedule an appointment.
