What is a Catholic Funeral?

Although not a sacrament, preparing the funeral of someone you love is an act of love. For Catholic Christians, this loving act also expresses our faith in the power of Jesus’ resurrection. This love and faith are central to what death means to a Christian. Life is changed, not ended – those who die pass through death to new life in God. In God, our bonds of love remain intact.

During this time of sorrow and grief, you are not alone. The Christian community walks with you, supporting you. Please contact the Parish office at (780) 452-3988 to make funeral arrangements.
