Catholic funerals services, including the wake, Funeral Mass, and burial offer family, friends, and loved ones who gather together the opportunity to both give and receive comfort.
Please call our parish office at (727) 595-4610 to speak to us and let us know when your loved one's passing occurred and what funeral home you will be making arrangements with. We pledge to do all we can to support you during this difficult time. Our local funeral homes will help take care of most details with our Church regarding logistics and times.
Our funeral planning volunteers will help guide you through planning the funeral liturgy. During a funeral Mass there is an introductory rite, the Liturgy of the Word (readings), Liturgy of the Eucharist, and a final commendation and farewell.
St. Jerome is here to assist you
At St. Jerome, we celebrate our faith belief in the eternal life, praying for the one who died in what we call the Order of Christian Funerals.
We are available to you each step of the way, to make sure your arrangements provide the consolation and spiritual prayers you desire for your loved one.
We have developed a Funeral Planning Guide to assist your planning. The purpose of this guide is to provide families with the opportunity to discuss and plan the readings, songs, and important information about your loved one prior to attending a funeral planning session with our funeral consultant at St. Jerome. You may download the guide here.
