Funerals

Our parish is pleased to arrange funeral services for registered parishioners and any Catholic who lived within our parish boundaries. Our boundaries are:  North:  Patrick Lane; West: Interstate 15; South: Serene to Eastern / Interstate 215 to Gibson Road;  East:  Gibson Road.

Arrangements may be made directly with one of the priests by calling the parish office.   It advisable, however, to contact a funeral home first to see what times and dates are available for them; they will then contact the parish to check out available dates and times at St. Thomas More. Catholic funerals may be celebrated during a Funeral Mass or with a Memorial Service which includes Scripture readings and prayers. The latter may take place at the church or in the funeral home. Cremation is an acceptable practice in the Catholic Church; the Church asks, out of respect for the integrity of the deceased, that the remains be kept intact and not scattered. Cremation may take place after the Funeral Mass or, when necessary, prior to the funeral. The remains may be present during a Funeral Mass or Memorial Service.  The requested donation for a funeral is $250.00 (this includes musicians if requested).
