We know that this is a difficult time for you and your family. We hope that we can help you plan a beautiful and meaningful funeral liturgy for your loved one. Here are materials that will help to make that possible. We have suggested Scriptural readings, suggested musical selections and the “Funeral Liturgy Planning Sheet” for you to download and print. If you have any questions, please call our office: 315-637-9846.

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
