Planning of Funeral Mass

The first step is to contact our parish office at (315) 524-2611

The family will be asked to choose four hymns, one old testament text, one responsorial psalm, one new testament text
and one page of Intercessions for the Funeral Mass.

You will be asked to have three readers, three gift barriers to bring up offertory gifts. The parish will provide two
communion  cup ministers . You may use your family or friends of the family if already trained  (Optional) You may
choose a person to do the Eulogy.
