funerals

If death is imminent for a loved one, please call the priest: 714-544-3141. If your call is after hours, dial extension 102 to ring the priest's cell phone. It is an honor and a solemn joy to accompany families through the transition of death and entry into life. 


Planning for the Future

An important task in being prepared is the making of burial arrangements before death occurs. It is a measure of our own spiritual health and awareness of our Christian hope. It is also one of the most loving gifts we can provide for our surviving family members because of the many decisions that surround death and burial. 


St. Paul's has prepared a booklet to help with this planning process. A copy is available from the Parish Office or we can mail one to you.


When Death Occurs

We are pleased to help families through their time of bereavement, but, since St. Paul's is a busy facility, please consult with the clergy and staff before scheduling any funeral or memorial service. We want to do the best job we can possibly do in providing a funeral service and pastoral care for those who are grieving, and it will be important to have the support of the faith community; so please keep the office and clergy in the loop when making plans.
