Gathering Before The Funeral
In order to allow mourners to pay their respects before the funeral, Our Lady of the Angels invites families to bring the body of their loved one to the church one half hour before the funeral begins. In that case, the hearse will carry the body to the gathering space where the coffin will be viewed.
The Memorial Luncheon
Anyone having a funeral at Our Lady of the Angels may also choose to have a luncheon in the Parish Center, located next to the church, on the day of the funeral. There is no charge for the center itself, which can accommodate medium to large groups of people. However, should two or more funerals occur on the same day, Our Lady of the Angels may only be able to accommodate the first family who requests a luncheon. Food is prepared by volunteers from the parish who wish to support you in your time of need. The Menu and prices are provided.
