The Church…accompanies [us] at [our] journey’s end, in order to surrender him “into the Father’s hands.” She offers to the Father, in Christ, the child of his grace, and she commits to the earth, in hope, the seed of the body that will rise in glory. This offering is fully celebrated in the Eucharistic sacrifice; the blessings before and after Mass are sacramental. Catechism of the Catholic Church #1683
The clergy and staff at Saints Simon & Jude extend our condolences at this time of loss and will do everything possible to assist you in planning a Catholic funeral.
To begin that process, please call our Parish Office at (714) 962-3333 to schedule a meeting with a priest. If a priest is not immediately available, he will promptly return your call.
May God bless you during this difficult and emotional time.
