We encourage all members to consider funeral planning ahead of time, making choices today that can help create peace of mind in the future. Funeral planning also is a profound help to family members who, in many cases, would be uncertain of how to proceed with a loved one’s wishes. Funeral planning is a concrete way to prepare for a process all of us will experience. Our Christian faith tells us that death, and preparing for that death, is not a failure or the end of hope.
The Cathedral has prepared information (Funeral Planning Sheet, Suggested Readings for Funerals) that guides the planning process for all persons involved. Funeral planning is appropriately done in the context of pastoral conversation with Cathedral clergy and our Director of Music Ministries. Please feel free to contact the Cathedral clergy about initiating the planning process.
