St. Philip's Funeral Ministry


This ministry consists of a funeral coordinator and several sacristans. The coordinator meets with the family of the deceased to plan the funeral mass and coordinates the family's desires with the celebrant. Two sacristans are assigned to the funeral mass to set-up all that is needed for the mass as well as helping the family and mortuary personnel with lectors, flowers, and pictures.
