"Gracious is the LORD and righteous; yes, our God is merciful. The LORD protects the simple; I was helpless, but he saved me. Return, my soul, to your rest; the LORD has been very good to you. For my soul has been freed from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling. I shall walk before the LORD in the land of the living."
Psalms 116: 5 - 9
Thank you for choosing St. Katharine Drexel Catholic Church to pray for the salvation of your loved one and help lead your family and friends from grief to a deeper faith in the resurrection.
Below are the steps to arrange a Funeral Mass in our church.
- Reserve a date:
Fill out the online Funeral Mass Request form to start the process. Our office will be notified of your request while you read the other steps and have an understanding of the questions we are going to ask you and things you need to do now and before the Mass.
Because this is a private mass, we always give our families the opportunity to choose the 2 readings for the mass. You can click here to select one reading from the Old Testament and one from the New Testament.
You may coordinate all details including song selections with our Music Director. Musician honorariums are $200.
You may bring a framed photo of your deceased. We have an easel or small table where we can prop it up nicely on the altar.
We allow one eulogy after Holy Communion for no more than 5 minutes. Please let us know if someone will speak.
