Funerals at St. Mary’s and St. Joseph’s Catholic Church
The staff of St. Mary/St. Joseph Catholic Community are here to help you in planning a funeral. These are the steps to take:
Contact the Church Secretary regarding your needs: Gail Sowell, firstname.lastname@example.org, 936-894-2223
Meet with or speak to Father Ed about the date and time of the funeral, and to address any issues that may exist regarding either the funeral itself or the burial site. Gail will arrange the date and time of this meeting.
Communicate with the Funeral Coordinator, Laveta Malek, regarding your choice of music, and to let her know how many people you expect will be attending; also, let her know whether you would like to have a luncheon served after the service by St. Mary’s or St. Joseph’s Altar Society.
If appropriate, meet with Ann Schwartz regarding purchase of a burial site at St. Mary’s Cemetery.
