Funerals

The parish family of St. Peter the Apostle is prepared to offer you assistance as you face the loss of a loved one. At the time of death, family members and friends often feel overwhelmed with the details related to the funeral. Know that our parish staff is ready to organize and provide for all of your funeral mass arrangements if you so desire.

 

The Order of Christian Funerals also describes many areas within the funeral mass where family and friends can be involved in planning a beautiful and meaningful worship experience for all who gather on behalf of the bereaved and the deceased. For many families this becomes an important part of the grieving process and an opportunity to add a personal touch to their loved one’s farewell. We are prepared and eager to help you plan this liturgy.

 

Call the parish office at 630-773-1272 (ext. 201) to speak with Deacon Fred Maier, the Director of Liturgy, or dial the Parish Secretary (ext. 200) to begin the planning process. Leave a home and cell phone number, as well as the name of the family representative to contact. The funeral home may coordinate arrangements with the parish, as well. 

 

Our staff will provide you with mass planning materials, including a booklet Through Death to Life, which lists scripture options. The link to the left provides information about all the possibilities for family and/or friends to participate in the mass, some additional planning guidelines, a planning outline sheet and a list of most frequently requested funeral music.

 

St. Peter the Apostle Parish will accept funerals for all parishioners and those who are related to our parish in some way. Generally, St. Peter’s funerals are scheduled on Tuesday through Saturday in the morning hours from 9:30 am to 11:00 am. We will also accept funerals of baptized, non-parishioners, if availability allows and with the pastor’s approval.
