Give your family peace of mind with a preplanned Catholic funeral and burial.

When a loved one dies, it can shatter the world of those left behind. In addition to grief and sadness, they take on the stress of tending to necessary matters and the financial burden of a funeral service and burial, if prearrangements have not been made.

Ease the burden on your loved ones.

To relieve your family’s emotional stress and financial burden when a death occurs, consider a preplanned Catholic funeral or burial. A little planning now can save your loved ones a lot of hardship later. In addition to detailing your wishes, and providing all the important information, a preplanned funeral ensures the sacred Catholic funeral rites supported by your faith community. It can also reduce, or eliminate, the cost to your family at the time of your death.
