Plan A Funeral Today

If you live out of the area, or because of other commitments are unable to come in and meet with us, please use this page to help plan the Funeral Mass for your loved one. You will find readings and music selections listed below, as well as guidelines in case someone chooses to do a reflection. 

Once you have decided on your readings and music selections, complete the Mass Information form to finalize your choices. Linda, our Pastoral Care Coordinator, will be in contact to confirm its receipt. 

Step 1: Contact the Funeral Home

The first step in having a funeral at St. Pius X is to contact the Funeral Home you plan on working with. The Funeral Home will contact us to coordinate when the funeral mass will take place.

Step 2: Choose Readings

Step 3: Choose Music

Below you will find a sampling of each hymn on our funeral music sheet. These were recorded by our music director and one of our cantors, so these will give you a great idea of what the hymns will sound like during the services for your loved one.

The following hymns are used for the gathering hymn, the offertory hymn, the communion hymn and the closing hymn:

Amazing Grace

Be Not Afraid

Eye Has Not Seen

For All the Saints

Here I Am, Lord


How Great Thou Art

I Am the Bread of Life

I Know That My Redeemer Lives

Jesu Joy of our Desiring

Let There Be Peace On Earth

Love Divine, All Loves Excelling

On Eagle’s Wings

Prayer of St. Francis

Precious Lord, Take My Hand

Sing With All the Saints in Glory

You Are Near

The following are two choices for the communion meditation:

Ave Maria

Hail Mary, Gentle Woman (link to come)
