When an individual is near death it is highly appropriate to invite a priest to be present to minister to the dying person and their family. Regardless of the time of day or night, we are here to serve and be a source of comfort and hope.
The date for a funeral is made in consultation with the church and the family members. Often the funeral director can assist with scheduling while making other arrangements.
The planning for a funeral or memorial service needs to be made in consultation with Fr. Seth. The elements of the funeral, including music, readings, and the participation of family members or friends in the service, are all details that should be carefully discussed.
St. Bart’s is fortunate to have space for a columbarium on our property where we can inter ashes. Please contact the office to inquire about space and pricing.
