Typically, the funeral home will contact the parish to schedule the day and time of the Funeral Mass.  St. Helen’s provides a Funeral Planning Booklet that allows family members to choose readings and music selections for the Mass.  Please call the Rectory office if you are in need of a Planner.

We offer assistance to family members of deceased parishioners in planning funeral rites.  Ministers of Consolation are present for each Funeral Mass, helping those who suffer loss of a loved one to participate fully, actively, and consciously.  For more information, contact Linda Mastrangelo at (718) 738-1616, ext. 213.
