“All the sacraments, and principally those of Christian initiation, have as their goal the last Passover of the child of God which, through death, leads him into the life of the Kingdom.  Then what he confessed in faith and hope will be fulfilled: ‘I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.’” ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1680


In planning a funeral firstly have the funeral home or yourselves contact the parish office to check if the date you desire is available before any other planning takes place.  When contacting the church, please have a date for the funeral in mind.  If the office is closed, call our sister parish, SS. Charles & Helena at 810-686-9861, and ext. 600 to reach Fr. Ken and he will work with you.

*Please note that the only day St. Francis Xavier cannot do a funeral is the last Thursday of each month.


If you are interested in pre-planning your funeral liturgy, contact the parish office to get the paperwork.
