Through song and prayer we can help family and friends express sorrow, even as we hold to the Church's lasting faith in the Communion of Saints and the resurrection of the dead.

Music for the Funeral Mass may be chosen from this collection of hymns that are appropriate for a funeral liturgy. Other selections must be sacred in nature and appropriate for a Mass. Secular music and other music which is not appropriate for a Mass may be incorporated into the wake service at the funeral home.

We may be able to accommodate a request for a hymn which is not in our hymnal so long as it is in the organist's repertoire.


Choose up to 3 to be placed in an appropriate part of the Mass. Songs marked with an asterisk (*) may not be used during Lent.
