Funerals

Covid-19 Update: Please note that for the time being funerals can be celebrated at the church with no more than 50 people.  

WE REMEMBER, WE CELEBRATE, WE BELIEVE!

The One who goes back to the House of the Father does not need anything except our prayer!

The ultimate way of prayer in the Catholic Church is the Eucharist where we remember the very sacrifice of Jesus who died for our salvation!

During the celebration of the Mass we honor God and we thank Him for the gift of the one whose soul we commend to him!

ANOINTING OF THE SICK

Starting at the hospital, home, or hospice, you can request to have your loved one be anointed by the Priest. Fr. Heriberto can go and provide the Sacrament of  Anointing of the Sick. 

The Anointing of the Sick brings spiritual healing through the absolution of sins, and the hoped-for effect is that, if it is God’s will, the person be physically healed of illness. That is why it is very important that the person receiving this sacrament is to be aware of it.  Family members should not wait until the last minute when their loved one is unconscious to request this sacrament.

CONTACT THE FUNERAL HOME

When ready for funeral preparations, the first thing to do is to contact the funeral home who will be handling the service and let them know that you want to have the Holy Mass of Resurrection at Holy Family Catholic Church. 

LITURGY PLANNER

Edgar
Edgar Millan Holy Family Liturgy Planner

Trying to help our families cope during this sensitive time, we have developed a close relationship with all funeral homes in town. They all have our Liturgy Planner’s contact number for your convenience. Once the legal process is completed, either the funeral home or the person who has the LEGAL POWER OF ATTORNEY will setup an appointment for the family to meet with Edgar who will walk them through all the details for the celebration of the Holy Mass of Resurrection.

TIME

Keep in mind that funerals are not the only celebrations we have in the community. To provide a better and more efficient service, ALL funeral masses are celebrated from Tuesday to Friday at 11:00 a.m.

ROSARY

06_DeaconMarco
Deacon Marco D. Vegas Holy Family Parish Deacon

The source and summit of our faith as Catholics is the Holy Eucharist, a devotion like the Rosary should never take precedence over the Mass. That is why when a Rosary is requested, it will ALWAYS be prayed the night before at 6:00 p.m. except for Sundays. For your convenience, our Deacon Marco Vegas is available to lead the family through a Scriptural Rosary.  

EULOGY

In the same way as the Rosary, a Eulogy is not considered a liturgical part of the celebration of the Holy Mass of Resurrection. To preserve the centrality of the Mass, a good moment for a Eulogy could be during the Rosary or at the reception, but NEVER before or during the Mass.
