The loss of a loved one is always difficult

Celebrating the gift of faith with family and friends is an essential part of the healing process. We walk with you through this most difficult moment ensuring that your wishes are fulfilled.

“Because of our belief not only in the immortality of the soul, but also in the resurrection of the body, the Church professes hope in the face of death, and acts with charity in the funeral rites. The Church provides a number of prayers for the faithful to offer both to accompany the dying of a loved one and to strengthen our faith upon their death. Through private prayer and public funeral rites, we strengthen our faith and hope, comfort those who mourn, and bury the bodily remains of the deceased with care befitting what was the Temple of the Holy Spirit.”

– United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

What to do if a loved one has passed

  • Call 911.  When a loved one dies at home or in a place that is not a healthcare facility, you will need to contact emergency personnel before they can be taken into our care.
    • If your loved one was under medical care, it’s a good idea to notify their physician.
  • If your loved one dies in a healthcare facility, the facility will notify the proper authorities.
  • The next steps involve registration of the death.  The processes and documentation involved depends upon the circumstances. The professionals you contacted will help guide you through obtaining a medical certificate and the appropriate registration procedures.

This part of the process is often the most emotional, and we are here to help and support you. If you are not sure what to do, call us any time.
