Funerals at OLQP

"I am the Resurrection and the Life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even though they die.”

If a loved one has died, our hearts and prayers go out to you and your family. To arrange a funeral at Our Lady, Queen of Peace Catholic Church, please first contact your funeral director. They will guide you in all of the steps involved in funeral planning and will also contact the church on your behalf.

Roman Catholic Funeral Readings

In every celebration for the dead, the Church attaches great importance to the reading of the Word of God. The readings proclaim to the assembly the Paschal Mystery, teach remembrance of the dead, convey the hope of being gathered together again in God’s kingdom, and encourage the witness of Christian life. Above all, the readings tell of God’s designs for a world in which suffering and death will relinquish their hold on all whom God has called his own. A careful selection and use of readings from Scripture for the funeral rites will provide the family with an opportunity to hear God speak to them in their needs, sorrows, fears, and hopes.

In the celebration of the Liturgy of the Word at the funeral liturgy, the Biblical readings may not be replaced by nonbiblical readings.
