The first step in planning a funeral is to contact a funeral home. The funeral home will then contact the parish office to help you schedule a meeting with one of our priests and our Director of Music to plan the funeral liturgy of your loved one. Our priests are also available to meet for spiritual counselling.

You are welcome to use any funeral home you are comfortable working with. As a courtesy for those unsure of who to contact we can recommend Mountcastle Funeral Home.  


Losing a loved one is always difficult. The volunteers of the Funeral Receptions Ministry seek to serve parishioners by seeing to the details involved in creating a reception for family and friends of the deceased.  

Volunteers prepare the Fellowship Hall for families to gather, to share, reminisce and remember the life of their loved one. They set tables with linens and flowers; and prepare the buffet tables for food, dessert and beverages donated by Seton Lake Ridge parishioners. 

If you would like to assist in this ministry or to donate a dish for a funeral reception, please contact the Parish Office.
