Planning a Funeral

Walpole Catholic's Funeral Ministry is here to serve you, your family, and friends during this time of planning. First, we would like to extend our sincere condolences for your loss. It is never easy to lose a loved one, no matter their age or circumstances. Know that you and your family will be in our prayers. If a loved one has been called home by God we will work in tandem with the funeral home of your choice and will be there for you each step of the way.

During this time of Covid -19 health risk, we have updated our Funeral protocol.

 A Priest is available for a Funeral Mass in the church and at the graveside. A Funeral Mass will continue to include the participation of the family through the readings and eulogy but at this time the family will not be allowed to bring up the gifts. 

Please follow the following protocol when going up for Communion:

Funeral Masses can be livestreamed at Blessed Sacrament only and must be arranged ahead of time. 

The fee for funerals is $700 and can be paid on the day of the funeral.
