Funeral Liturgy at The Basilica

Although many Catholics plan funeral liturgies for themselves or a love one in advance, planning a funeral is a time of grief and sadness, and there are many decisions to be made as families prepare to celebrate the death of a loved one. Whatever the situation, The Basilica staff are ready to walk with you, and hope to make the planning process clear and supportive for you and your family.

On this page, you will find all of the information you will need to plan a funeral liturgy. Please contact Mark Wyss 612.317.3410 to plan a celebration of life for a loved one who has just passed away, to find out about pre-planning a funeral for yourself or a loved one, or to ask any questions you have.
