Our Lady of the Assumption Parish

Guide for the Funeral Liturgy


“Lord, for your faithful people life is changed, not ended”

Preface of Christian Death I, Roman Missal


The community of Our Lady of the Assumption Parish shares in your grief as you suffer the loss of a loved one.  We hope that you know that the prayers and support of the parish are with you at this difficult time.  The death of a loved one can bring about many different feelings and emotions, from the shock and disbelief of sudden, unexpected death to relief when someone who has suffered for a long time is no longer suffering.  The Church’s prayer in the Rite of Christian Burial focuses our attention on the mystery of the suffering, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the promise that we, too, and your loved one, are called to share in that gift of new and everlasting life.  It is a time in which the Lord gives us comfort, healing and peace.  In order to assist you in planning the Funeral, we would like to offer you some thoughts and guidelines.
