Making Funeral Arrangements in San Jose
There is no denying that death is a stressful and sad time for a family. The process of funeral planning can seem insurmountable in the face of the immediate grief of the situation, but it is important to try to do things correctly.
Catholic Cemeteries of the Diocese of San Jose wish to make the entire process as painless as possible. We’re happy to talk you through various arrangement options for you or your loved ones. An understanding approach helps to ensure you can honor your loved ones appropriately.
Proper care will help ensure the deceased receives the proper Catholic funeral they are due. There are, as we’ve highlighted before, options to consider when it comes to funeral planning. These are important as they guide much of what happens to the body after death.
Let’s take a more detailed look at what we can offer you and your loved ones in this regard. This includes guidance on prearranging matters as well as guidance through the necessary steps after the fact. Our goal is to ensure families can get through a difficult time with as few troubles as possible.
Prearrangements for Burial
Taking the time to consider arranging your own funeral can seem morbid to some, but it is an important consideration for those of us who have not gone on to their eternal reward. Making arrangements ahead of time provides a clear set of instructions for your loved ones to follow.
Selecting your cemetery is an important step. This is particularly important if you don’t have a defined family plot or crypt. Furthermore, prearrangements help ensure there is a space available. It gives you the luxury of further minimizing costs in the future by acquiring a plot at current prices.
Lastly, taking the time to make the arrangements ahead of time allows you to specify your wishes clearly and ensure that there is a clear record to follow. You will have the service that you desire instead of hoping your family remembers your wishes.
Making Arrangements After the Unexpected
Unfortunately, most of us do not have the gift of foresight and the unthinkable can happen unexpectedly. Those of us put in the position of arranging a loved one’s funeral can feel more overwhelmed than other family members. We understand this and wish to help.
In addition to directing you and your loved ones to any of our three cemeteries, we will offer clear guidance on what different options will mean along with a pricing guide. We can also offer guidance on the proper rites to observe if cremation, a nontraditional form of burial, is chosen.
Offering this clear guidance allows us to ensure you and your loved ones are properly taken care of in such a trying time. Regardless of your particular decision, the Catholic Cemeteries of the Diocese of San Jose will ensure things are done properly and respectfully.
