Burial Planning Form

Burial Planning Form

( )   -

My body is to be prepared for burial by this funeral home.

Enter place to be buried, or if cremated, location of ashes (i.e. St. Peter's columbarium, or family taking ashes), or, if your body is to be donated for medication research, please indicate facility to receive your body.

Organs Donated

Do you want your organs to be donated?

Directions regarding coffin (burial only)

If I have chosen burial in a coffin, I want the coffin to be open or closed in the funeral home, and then kept closed once it is brought to the church, where it will be covered by our parish's pall.

Please list names of Pallbearers, even if honorary only and not actually present.

Advance Burial- Memorial Service Option*

Instead of the body or ashes being present at the service, I would prefer a burial held in advance, followed by a Memorial Service in the church.

Family and friends who wish to express their love in a tangible offering are requested to do so by means of a gift to (state organization). If no preference, state no preference.

Funeral Flowers*

Your family may order flowers directly with a florist, or, if you do want to spend money on lavish displays of flowers, the church may arrange, on your behalf, the use of altar flowers (normally distributed to the sick and shut-in following the service). Your family is responsible for payment of flowers regardless of option chosen. If you choose altar flowers, your family may still provide feedback on favorite colors, etc.

Order for the Burial of the Dead*

Please indicate your preference for a Rite One or Rite Two service.

Holy Communion*

Please indicate your preference for whether or not you would like Holy Communion to be celebrated.

If you would like a Hymn before the Gospel you may choose one psalm from either set for after the Old Testament Lesson.
