Funeral Choir:  Members of this committee are present at every funeral and sit in a group on the right side of the Church. They represent our parish to the relatives of the deceased. During each funeral the committee joins in the prayers of the Mass and the hymns sung by the cantor.

Members receive the funeral information by phone and pass it on by a phone chain. All members who are able to attend are welcome.
