Arranging a Funeral
If someone dies in your family, you will need to contact your Funeral Director and the Saint Margaret Mary Parish Office at 847-658-7625. Arrangements will be made with one of the priests. The Funeral Director has materials explaining the procedures of a Catholic Funeral and the practices of the Saint Margaret Mary Parish Family. One of the priests or Pastoral Associates will help you prepare the religious services.
To better understand what Catholic Funerals entail, you may wish to download the information booklet, “What Families Should Know about the Catholic Funeral Rites.” Those who wish to have the body cremated should be reminded that the Church asks that cremation happen after the visitation and the Funeral Services are completed.
