St. Monica is complying with LA County Safer-At-Home Restrictions.
Funerals may only be celebrated with the Rite of Committal, more commonly known as the gravesite service. At this time, we are being told by cemeteries that only two people can attend, but they must stay in their cares, while the priest alone approached the grave for the blessing. Memorial Masses may be celebrated later in the year. Please call (310) 566-1520 or for more information.
St. Monica's Funeral Ministry is here to serve you, your family, and friends during this time of planning.
First, we would like to extend our sincere condolences for your loss. It is never easy to lose a loved one, no matter their age or circumstances. Know that you and your family will be in our prayers. If a loved one has been called home by God and you want to schedule a funeral or memorial service, please call and schedule a meeting.
A resource put together as a gift to our Church for moments of prayer toward the end of life, especially useful for us as we accompany a loved one who may be in hospice, or near death when a priest cannot come to celebrate the Anointing of the sick.
