On behalf of our pastor, Father Brian Dinkel, IVE, the IVE priests, our SSVM sisters, and the entire staff at Our Lady of Peace, please be assured of our sympathy, prayers and support during this difficult time. Dealing with the pain of losing a loved one is a difficult thing, but the Catholic funeral liturgy and traditions offer great comfort when confronting the death of a loved one.

In the Catholic funeral, not only is comfort offered to those in mourning, but also prayers for the deceased.
The information provided in this document will help in understanding the Order of Christian Funerals and policies at Our Lady of Peace Church and Shrine. Please note that it is customary and reasonable that families make an offering to the church, which would cover the utilities and materials used. This flyer includes a listing of standard stipends. As always, additional donations to Our Lady of Peace Church and Shrine in lieu of flowers would be graciously accepted. Mortuary personnel will go over these items with you as you finalize your arrangements.
