Please know that each day those who have died are remembered at every Mass, as are those who mourn. We hope the Church’s prayer will be a comfort and consolation for you at this testing time.

Preparing the funeral service of someone who has died can be a difficult thing to face. The following documents have been prepared to make the preparations easier. May the time you spend reflecting on the Word of God strengthen your trust and faith in God’s love and mercy.

Please do make an appointment with Father Chris or one of our deacons to discuss the funeral arrangements. They have a lot of experience of preparing and celebrating the Funeral Liturgy of the Church. They will welcome your suggestions and consider how they can then best prepare the Liturgy in line with the Church’s tradition, and respectful of your particular circumstances.

We hope you find what follows helpful at this difficult time
