The Catholic funeral liturgy brings great consolation to family and friends of the deceased.   If you need to schedule a funeral liturgy or a memorial Mass, please contact the parish office at 630-338-8000.

We have also prepared Funeral Guidelines to assist families in picking out readings and music for the funeral liturgy.  Click Funeral Guidelines to access the document.   If you have any questions about arranging a funeral, any of the priests at the parish would be happy to assist you.

We ask that you give all fees to the Sacristan or Priest before the Mass begins.  If you are working with a Funeral Home, they will take care of these details.  The fees are below:

$100 to St. Patrick Parish

$150 to the Organist

$100 to the Cantor

$10 each to the Two Altar Servers

Normally, an amount is also given to the Priest as a sign of gratitude. (usually $100.00)
