“Christians celebrate the funeral rites to offer worship, praise, and thanksgiving to God
for the gift of life which has now been returned to God, the author of life and the hope of the just.”
(Order of Christian Funerals, #5)
The funeral liturgy is the central celebration of the Christian community for the deceased. At the funeral liturgy the community gathers with the family and friends of the deceased to give praise and thanks to God for Christ’s victory over sin and death, to commend the deceased to God’s tender mercy and compassion, and to seek strength in the proclamation of the Paschal Mystery.
Please contact the parish office at 360-687-4515 for scheduling your loved one's Funeral Mass.
