We pray that the soul of your loved one may be at peace in the arms of God, and we also pray for you at this very difficult and painful moment.  Please know that we are here to walk with you at this time.

Preparing a Funeral Mass for a loved one is one of the hardest things for one to do, but know this, your don’t have to do it on your own, we are here for you. We want to assist you in preparing for the funeral Mass of your loved one and make this process as easy as possible for you and your family.

Below you’ll find a link that will lead you into the different steps, different readings, different songs and other things.

Feel free to look at it, and if you feel comfortable and want to even start making decisions, please do, but only if you would like.  We normally meet with our families, in person or over the phone and can answer any questions and even give suggestions.

Our goal, to help you put together a mass that not only honors and celebrates the life of your loved one, but helps you at this moment of grief and pain.

most asked questions for funeral masses


To make it easier for teh family the funeral homes will automatically get in contact with us for you.  But for those ceremonies that funeral homes are not involved, mass with cremains or a memorial mass, please contact our rectory directly at 908-464-7600.


There are two readings at every funeral, one reading from the Old Testament,  one from the New Testament, and then there is the Prayer of the Faithful.  These can be done by the family or friends or the parish can take care of it.


You can further personalize the Mass by hand-picking participants for special roles in the service: Readers (up to 3), Gift Bearers (2), Pallbearers (up to 8).
