Other Important Information
It is best to accomplish these tasks while still of able mind and body.
- Plan a meeting with your parish priest or the Pastoral Care Office so a priest can administer the sacraments to the dying family member and answer any questions the family may have about death and the church’s funeral rites.
- Discuss your dying family member’s wishes, taking into consideration what is best for him or her. Honoring the wishes of the dying is outlined in this planning guide.
- Make any arrangements you can before the death of your loved one, including planning the funeral rites and selecting cemetery property.
