Funeral Guidelines


Cathedral of Saint Peter the Apostle Funeral Guidelines

“I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he die,

yet shall he live, and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die.” (John 11:25-26)


The Cathedral staff offer their sincere condolences on the passing of your loved one.  May God give you the grace you need as you prepare to say farewell.

The Cathedral Rector and the pastoral staff will meet with family members to assist them in planning for the funeral Liturgy [and/or wake service] of their loved one.  Planning includes assistance with choosing readings, music, and as well as assistance with logistics for the funeral Mass. The Cathedral Bereavement Committee  offers hospitality of a light meal following the service or it can be delivered to their home.
