As Catholics we believe that what happened to Jesus in His resurrection from the dead will also one day happen to each of us. The truth of life after death brings joy and comfort to believers as they mourn the death of a loved one.
Contact your local funeral home to help you plan your funeral. Many funeral homes will provide you with a booklet, "Through Death to Life" that helps you plan the funeral liturgy. St. Joan of Arc will also assist you in planning the funeral liturgy and music (Peace of Mind); please contact the Parish Office 847.673.0409 to make arrangements.
We also recommend www.catholiccemeterieschicago.org as a resource.
