Funeral arrangements

In the Catholic Tradition, a funeral enables family and friends to join together in a celebration of faith to remember the life of a loved one who has passed. With the promise of everlasting life and the hope of Resurrection in Christ, a Catholic funeral commemorates the journey of the individual from baptism to redemption. A funeral is a time to share the memories of a loved one and support family and friends. Three distinct rites are provided at the time of the funeral. Each rite serves an important purpose in guiding our family and friends through loss, grief and the journey of healing. While all Catholic funerals share a similar format, the celebration of remembrance of the loved one is unique and personal to the individual’s life. Just as every individual is unique, so is every funeral.

Catholic Funeral and Cemetery Services is a ministry of the Diocese of Oakland and they’re available to help your family through every step of the funeral process.  See details.  Your funeral director will work with yourself and St. Joseph/Mission San Jose to arrange a funeral Mass with the parish priest. The schedules of both the priest celebrant and the parish facilities must be considered when choosing the date, time and venue for a funeral celebration. No decision involving them can be made without confirmation by the Parish Office.


Here in our historic Mission San Jose Cemetery we now offer niches for the cremains for either yourself or your loved one. For more information on this unique opportunity please contact Catholic Funeral and Cemetery Services (CFCS) at 800-498-4989 or go to .
