Chapel Funerals

The death of a loved one is a time of sorrow and profound grief. It is also a time when our Christian faith in the Resurrection of Christ can offer great comfort and allow us to experience grace in the midst of sadness. 

The prayerful rituals of the Catholic Church at the time of death are meant to bring hope and consolation to family members and friends even as they commend the soul of the deceased person to the loving mercy of God.

The Campus Ministry Liturgy Team offers the following list of questions and answers in the hope that it will help family members better understand the way the Chapel of St. Ignatius celebrates funerals and assist them as they prepare to celebrate the funeral of their loved one in the most fitting way possible.
