At St. Mary, grieving families will find comfort in their meetings to plan their loved one’s funeral. The first step will be to meet with the funeral home of the family’s choice.
If not using a funeral home, the family may contact the Parish Office directly to speak with Debbie Pelliccione, who will help them schedule a service. After the services have been scheduled, the family will meet with a priest for condolences and to plan the funeral. Debbie will take care of scheduling the musicians for the Mass and will have the musician contact the family to discuss the music. Musicians are available to play in English and Spanish.
Mariachis are welcomed and will need to be discussed with the Priest in advance. If the family will be using St. Mary Cemetery for their loved one’s final resting place, they will need to make an appointment to meet with Debbie once the location at the cemetery has been chosen.
