Below is a transcript the the video:
Hello and welcome to this week’s Funeral Facts with Deacon Mark.
This is actually the fourth video of the series where we’ve been talking about pre-planning.
So, our first one, we talked about the benefits of pre-planning, how it gives you peace of mind and make sure that your desires are oriented, it saves you money, a lot of and relieves the stress of your family members at that time and so, lot of benefits to it.
Then, we went into a little bit about what’s involved with pre-planning at the cemetery and talked about the important of getting working with a real professional and help guide you in just like you get a real estate agent help you with the house. Really recommend having somebody work with you through all the different questions so that they can get the best space for your final internment.
And then, we talked about the funeral home side of things and planning the funeral home side of things.
So, there’s a third piece of planning that needs to take place and that’s the church and the services are going to be taking place and we always recommend, we’re a ministry of the Archdiocese of Denver. We always recommend people go to their parishes for that planning and they can help you plan what readings you want, what kind of music you want. If you have preferences to who would say the funeral, mass, service, whatever you may have. They can help you with those kinds of decisions.
At the same point in time, we do have some resources here to help you with that as well and one of the things I want to offer to you is we do have a free planning guide that you’re welcome to request through our website that we’ll put up here on the screen for you.
We can send this to you digitally, give it to you for free, and it really is nice. It walks you through a lot of different things to plan for the church. So, all the readings are in here and we have samples of songs that can be used, hymns that can be used but then, also and it talks about what records should be gathered, how you should have everything one place, a lot of great resources in this book that we can get to you for free.
So, we offer this to you as a good way to help you continue this planning process or begin planning process so we got the four pieces why pre plan is important, the cemetery, and the funeral side and then the church and the service.
