Funeral Planning

The pastors and staff of St. Raphael the Archangel Catholic Church want you to know that we will do everything humanly possible to provide the comfort and hospitality you and your family is seeking throughout this time of need. Our parish averages approximately 40 funerals every year, and we have a well-seasoned system in place to help you navigate through this time, allowing you more time to spend with one another focused on personal relationships, rather than spending your time figuring out funeral logistics.

Around the time of death (as much as is possible), please contact the parish office at (920) 233-8044. Call us anytime 24 hours a day. In the evenings, our operator-based answering service will relay a message to us concerning your need. We will call into action our parish's funeral liturgy planning team, and a staff member will contact you to set up a time to go through specific decisions regarding the funeral for your loved one. At this gathering, a staff member will listen to your needs and work with you to determine how to proceed.

Unfortunately, we cannot offer livestreaming services for private events at this time. We do have two wifi access points in the church for a solid connection so that families can find a relative or friend to livestream the funeral from their personal device.

If you have any further questions regarding funeral planning, or if you would like to consider pre-planning your funeral liturgy, we encourage you to contact us at our parish office during regular business hours at (920) 233-8044.
