Here to Help
Parish staff will assist you, including the preparation of everything needed for the funeral liturgy. Should you prefer, your funeral director can first make contact with the Parish Office. Funeral rites are conducted in either of our churches.
Fr Ford will be informed of your bereavement and will contact you promptly. Details of prayers and readings will be arranged with the priest.
Arrangements for the music will be made with the Director of Music please contact the Parish Office 9583 2103
Please note that there is no installation for audio-visual presentations.
Small groups of up to 40 or 50 people can be accommodated for refreshments between the Funeral Mass and departure for the cemetery. Normally, larger groups cannot be accommodated as the parish halls are utilised in term times by St Patrick’s school.
“In the face of death, the Church confidently proclaims that God has created each person for eternal life and that Jesus, the Son of God, by his death and resurrection, has broken the chains of sin and death that bound humanity.”
