It is more than useful to call a priest to the bedside of a loved one who is dying so that they can be fortified by the grace of God through the sacraments of the Church.


After the death of your loved one, please contact the Parish Priest, who will discuss and guide you in all aspects of the funeral liturgy to take place in church, at the crematorium or at the graveside.

You can discuss whether you want to arrange a Requiem Mass or a Funeral Service to suit your families needs. An organist will be booked for the funeral to provide hymns and instrumental music to help lift heart and mind to God during this time of need.
