The funeral liturgy in a church setting is a final opportunity to commend the deceased to God’s mercy, and to reflect on how the person’s life mirrored the love and teachings of Jesus Christ, who promises that one day, the Christian will rise again and live with him in the New Jerusalem. Forever. 

When a death in the family occurs:

  • Call the Parish Office immediately and let them know what you would like or need from the church.
  • Ask if the church and a priest are available for a funeral mass and give 2 or 3 dates for consideration.
  • Call a mortuary at the same time and let them know that you are registered at St. Pius X of Chula Vista and have already contacted the Parish and are waiting for a response. (Someone from the Church will contact you)

To prepare before a death anyone can fill out a Pre-Plan Sheet (found here) and keep it with their Trust & Will.
When the time comes, planning will be easier. 

The Parish of St. Pius X also has a Consolation Committee that serves our community when a family member dies. It's important for the family to know of and feel our love and support during this difficult time.
