Funeral Preparation

Planning a Funeral

If you have experienced the  death of a loved one and are seeking to have a Funeral Mass or Memorial Service at Immaculate Conception, we are here to help. Please contact the Pastoral Ministry Coordinator, Elaine LaFollette, at (315) 637-9846 or elafollette@syrdio.org or fill out the forms below. Our Pastoral Staff can also help you pre-plan a Funeral Mass for yourself or a loved one. Funeral pre-planning is a wonderful gift, saving your family and friends the difficult task of making funeral decisions during a time of loss and grief. 

Homily Hints

Reminder to provide the priest giving the homily a few hints about your deceased loved one to make the funeral mass more personal. These hints should be written up and given in with the funeral planning form. Example: What are some values and/or virtues that your loved one embraced? What do you want the grandchildren to remember about their Grandma?

 

Copies of Readings

Copies of the selected readings to be read by family and friends at the funeral Mass will be given out at the Wake or sooner. These copies are for your practice only. A binder will be at the podium with all the selected readings. You do not have to bring your copy up

When you have filled out the planning sheet, please return it to our office:
