It is natural that when someone dies, their family and friends will want to come together to express their grief and give thanks for their life at a funeral service. Many will also want to commend that person into God's safe keeping and will therefore want that service to be conducted by the parish priest in your local church, or at the local crematorium or cemetery. Our priests will shape your service to be personal, loving, honoring and supportive.
Whether you belong to church or not our priests are here to support you at this important and often emotional and challenging time.

God of Truth, honestly, I cry through the night and embrace mourning in the day. But Your word declares that weeping may remain for a night but rejoicing comes in the morning! I pray for this shift in my life, I pray for divine peace within my heart so that I can rejoice in the morning, even though I have lost, and I have grieved. I believe in Your word, and I know that even though it doesn’t feel like it, I can achieve healing from this pain, Amen.
Draw me closer to You Lord and never let me go! I know that You are close to the broken-hearted and You save those who are crushed in spirit. With the loss that I have endured and the grief that I am in, I know that I am both broken-hearted and crushed. I pray that I feel Your presence even more in this season so that I know that I am not alone and that I do not need to remain in this state of sorrow, Amen.
