Funeral Ministry

The Coordinator of the Funeral Minstry at Holy Family~Notre Dame is Rose Taulu. She can be contacted by calling the parish office.


The mission of Funeral Ministry is to provide the family and others with compassionate support in planning either a funeral or memorial liturgy to Celebrates the Life of a deceased loved one.


The team will provide guidance with choosing songs and readings and will coordinate lectors, altar servers, musicians and other needed assistance for the funeral and memorial services and Masses. They assist with planning Prayer Vigils the evening before.


The team works closely with the parish staff and volunteers as well as the two local funeral homes in order to ensure all the details are taken care of on behalf of the family and friends.


Catholic Women's League (CWL) and the Knights of Columbus (KofC) participate in the Masses and services when the life one of their members is being celebrated.


The CWL of the parish provides a lunch or reception for the grieving family and friends.




It is possible to pre-plan your own funeral or memorial celebration. The team will work with you and keep your requests safely and confidentially stored for the future.


To contact the Funeral Ministry, please call the parish office.
