Rite of Christian Burial — Funeral

Normally a Mass is celebrated at St. Anselm followed by burial at the chosen cemetery. The Pastor or an Associate Pastor generally presides; other priests are welcome to concelebrate. Funeral arrangements are made in consultation with the family, the funeral home, the Parish Priest and the Director of Music.

Funeral Outreach

This ministry is a very tangible way to care for others in our Parish at the time of a death. Members are available to house sit during the wake and/or funeral, as well as serve a luncheon following the funeral. They may also serve as Greeters and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion at the Funeral Mass.
