Lord, for your faithful people,
life is changed, not ended.

If you would like to plan a funeral liturgy at The National Shrine of Saint Rita of Cascia, please have the funeral home contact our Shrine Office at 215.546.8333.

Once the funeral is booked, the priest presider for your loved one’s funeral liturgy will contact you directly to discuss the funeral arrangements and to learn about the deceased from you.

To prepare for this meeting, please use our Funeral Booklet and Funeral Liturgy Form found below to choose appropriate readings and hymns for the Funeral Liturgy. Then call the Shrine Office to let us know your selections. Alternatively, you may provide this sheet to the priest presider when you meet with him.

Please refer to the Funeral Booklet for eulogy guidelines for funerals at the National Shrine of Saint Rita of Cascia.

If you have any questions or further needs, please contact the Shrine Office at 215.546.8333 and our staff or Augustinian Friars will be pleased to assist you.
