My condolences on the death of your loved one. I'm available to help with preparing the music for the funeral liturgy at St. Francis of Assisi Church.


I’ll work with you to select and provide music that is meaningful to you and your family and expresses Catholic faith and hope for eternal life through salvation in Jesus Christ.

Please read the Options for Musicians page, which details stipends/fees for various musical services, and then the Choosing Music for the Funeral page, which provides guidance for selecting the music and includes a music choice submission form. Both pages may be accessed by selecting them from the header menu at the top of this website.

If you haven't already gotten in touch with me, please contact me by using the adjacent form at least three days before the funeral's scheduled date. It would be best to get in touch with me as soon as is feasible so we can make all the arrangements and plans for music comfortably ahead of time.

Please also note that stipends for musicians must be paid in advance, at least by the day prior to the funeral. Before implementing this policy, families sometimes neglected to pay musicians for their services, even with communication after the funeral.
