When families are struggling with the loss of a loved one, they are looking for the loving, caring presence of God as evidenced by the church. St. Cecilia is dedicated to providing to all an experience of the extravagant love of God made manifest in Jesus Christ and the Traditions of the Catholic Church.
What if we don't have a parish or have not been to Church for a while?
We believe that God never said "no" to anyone, and at a time in the life of your family you should not have to worry about how you will be received, or if you have deposited your envelope every week. We believe that everyone is entitled to a Christian burial, if one so desired.
Where are the services held?
St. Cecilia is located at 5105 SW Franklin Ave. in Beaverton, OR. We would be available to celebrate the liturgy at the funeral service your family chooses.
Would we be able to have a Mass?
Yes, we can provide a full Mass, or we can also provide you and your loved one with a wake service, grave site or cemetery service.
What is the charge for funeral services?
We accept donations for the support of our ministries. It is customary for your funeral directors to include a honorarium/stipend to his invoice for our services. We do not deny our services to anyone in financial distress.
How can I arrange for a funeral service?
Please contact the Parish Office to set up a meeting with a priest.
Our St. Gerard Guild is responsible for helping with funeral receptions on site.
