Funeral Planning

For Catholics death is not the end of life but the fulfillment of new birth begun at Baptism and the eternal reward of being at home with the Lord. While those left behind grieve the death of a loved one, Jesus has promised “they shall be comforted.”

Here at American Martyrs we help family members plan a liturgical celebration in our Church that will be a commemoration of the loved one’s earthly life and a proclamation of their entrance into eternal life.

Our funeral liturgy team guides the family in the selection of Scripture for the Liturgy of the Word, and in choosing prayers, songs, and environment that reflects the life of their loved one.

We also have trained ministers in our Bereavement Ministry to support people through the grieving process for as long as needed.
