Celebrating a Catholic Funeral

When a death occurs it is a traumatic time for the bereaved. As well as contacting the relatives, the family doctor and the funeral director, it is also important to contact one of the priests as quickly as possible. It is a central theme of the priest’s pastoral ministry at the time of death to lead the bereaved in prayer and to console them. Please do not make firm arrangements for the funeral before discussing them with a priest of the Parish.

Please contact the Parish Priest on 02890 665409

Funerals are live-streamed and kept for live for 1 month on our YouTube channel. The family can request a copy of the funeral mass through the parish office.

The Priest will provide families with a booklet 'The Celebration of Life' to help with preparations for the funeral mass which includes readings to choose. Copies of the readings can be downloaded below to send to family if needed.
