Funeral Planning

Your parish family is here to help you in your time of grief. We know that planning a funeral can seem overwhelming. Our parish will partner with your chosen funeral home to ease this burden.
To begin planning a funeral at St. Bede the Venerable Church, contact a funeral home. After the funeral home reaches out to us, one of our parish priests will contact you to set up a meeting in the Parish Office to plan the funeral liturgy.
Several resources are available to help you plan, including:
St. Bede the Venerable Funeral
Liturgy Planning Booklet.
Archdiocese of Philadelphia
Norms for Cremation 
Local Funeral Homes
Philadelphia Catholic Cemeteries Burial Information
& Advance Planning Kit.
