Funeral Planning

Please call the Funeral Director and then call Christ the King Parish at 630-629-1717 ext 2. Local funeral directors have our readings there but you may access them here.

 

Merciful Lord,
turn toward us and listen to our prayers:
open the gates of paradise to your servant
and help us who remain
to comfort one another with assurances of faith,
until we all meet in Christ
and are with you and with our brother/sister for ever.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
~Mass of Christian Burial
