You Are Not Alone
Funeral Music, Readings & Prayers of the Faithful
On behalf of the Parish Community of St. James Catholic Church, we would like to extend our deepest sympathy at the loss of your loved one.
Please know that we are here to help you and support you during this difficult time. One of our Bereavement Ministers will assist you in the planning of the Funeral Mass, and suggest ways for family and friends to be personally involved.
The remainder of this booklet contains Music Suggestions and Scripture Readings appropriate for the Catholic Funeral Rite. They are beautiful passages of comfort, peace, and hope.
May God’s strength and peace be with you.
