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 for St. Patrick Parish
$200 for the Priest Stipend
$150 for the Organist
$100 for the Cantor
$150 for the Instrumentalist, if applicable
$10 each for the two Altar Servers


Covid Requirements

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, gift bearers at Offertory are not allowed at this time. We are required to obtain a contact list of people who attend the funeral, in case of an exposure. The family and funeral home will be provided with a “link” for friends and family to use to sign up for the funeral mass. After 14 days, the names will be deleted. Thank you for your cooperation.
