Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen. 


How to arrange a funeral mass:  

Upon the death of a loved one, family members or an individual make contact with their undertaker of choice. The undertaker will then make contact with the priests of the parish on behalf of the family to make the necessary funeral arrangements. 

The parish of Rathmines has a trained and active Funeral Ministry team who will be available accompany and support you through this sad and difficult time in whatever way we can in preparing the Funeral Liturgy.
