Funeral Music Selections

Please select one piece for each part of the liturgy. If you have additional pieces you would like, please include that information in the comments section and if the music is liturgically appropriate, we will use it at the Mass of Christian Burial for your loved one. For more information, contact the Director of Music Ministry. You may also read the Diocese of Rockford's Funeral Guidelines regarding music on our parish web site.
