Funeral Planning at St. James Catholic Church

Thank you for visiting our site.  If you are on this page, it is either because you recently lost a loved one or perhaps you are making your plans for your own funeral for when the time comes.  Drawing on the long tradition of the Church, the Funeral Rites are the simplest, and yet most beautiful expression of our belief in the Resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ, and of the promise we received in Baptism, that we have died in Christ, might also share in his Resurrection!  While you will find resources (readings, etc.) here to help you plan the liturgy, it is best to contact our pastor, in order to organize, and to have any questions answered.  

If you are planning a funeral for a death that has recently ocurred, please contact the parish priest by telephone at 816-238-0853 and press 4 "if you need to reach a priest for an emergency".  

If you are pre-planning for a funeral for yourself, or for a loved one who may die in the near future, you may call the office or complete the form below.
