Anointing of the Sick & Funeral Planning

Anointing (along with Confession) is currently available on Wednesdays from 12 noon - 1 pm, on Saturdays from 4 - 4:45 pm, or by appointment in the Immaculata/Holy Name Room (meeting rooms in the hallway next to church).

If you are wishing to donate online to Immaculate Conception in memory of a lost loved one, please go here and select "Memorials" in the drop-down menu. You can then add the departed's name in the "Memo" line. Thank you.

Funeral Planning

Please contact the Parish Office (635-6143) at the time of a death. Please confirm with a priest before setting a time and place for a funeral.

Funeral Luncheons

Meals are provided by our Funeral Luncheon ministry. Meat is provided by the family and all other dishes are provided by IC parishioners. (Donations are appreciated to cover the costs of paper goods, hot food items, etc.)

Readings for the Funeral Liturgy

In every celebration for the dead, the Church attaches great importance to the reading of the word of God. The readings proclaim to the assembly the Paschal Mystery, teach remembrance of the dead, convey the hope of being gathered together again in God's kingdom, and encourage the witness of Christian life. Above all, the readings tell of God's designs for a world in which suffering and death will relinquish their hold on all whom God has called his own. A careful selection and use of readings from Scripture for the funeral rites will provide the family with an opportunity to hear God speak to them in their needs, sorrows, fears, and hopes.

In the celebration of the Liturgy of the Word at the funeral liturgy, the Biblical readings may not be replaced by nonbiblical readings. But during prayer services with the family nonbiblical readings may be used in addition to readings from Scripture.
