Funerals

Funerals at St. Olaf Catholic Church


Burying the dead is one of the most important ministries offered at St. Olaf. Whether you wish to pre-plan a funeral or make arrangements for the funeral of a loved one, the priests and staff of St. Olaf are ready to assist you. We will guide you through every stage of the planning process and be with you throughout the day of the funeral celebration.

 

INITIALLY:


The first step is to call the parish office at 612-332-7471.  Our office staff will receive pertinent information from you and connect you with a priest. We will talk with you about several items, including:

• Whether your loved one has already planned the funeral.
• A date and priest for the funeral liturgy. Funerals may be scheduled Monday – Saturday at 10:00 a.m.
• Use of the church or the chapel, depending on number of guests expected.
• The options to have visitation before and hospitality following the funeral.
• Whether there will be a body (casket) or cremains (urn) present at the funeral, or this will be a memorial mass (no body or cremains present).
• Information on your chosen mortuary, including the name, contact person, phone number, and email.
• Your plans for burial of the deceased, including place, time, and any requests of St. Olaf.
