Making Funeral Arrangements at Church of the Little Flower

  • Mass with Remains Present
    • All arrangements and scheduling for Funeral Mass that will occur with the remains (body) present must be done through the funeral home. Please have your Funeral Director call Luis J. Cuza, our Director of Music Ministries at (305) 446-9950 Ext. 3068 or email at LCuza@cotlf.org.
  • Mass with Cremains Present
    • All arrangements and scheduling for Funeral Mass that will occur with cremains (ashes) present will only be scheduled once the family has possession of the ashes. No Mass will be scheduled until the family has the ashes in their possession. Once you have received the ashes, please call Luis J. Cuza, our Director of Music Ministries at (305) 446-9950 Ext. 308 or Email at LCuza@cotlf.org.
  • Going to the Cemetery
    • After the conclusion of the mass, a priest or a deacon will follow the family to the cemetery for the Rite of Committal. All interments must take place immediately after the conclusion of the Funeral Mass.
  • Music
    • All funeral liturgies include music at the Church of the Little Flower. This includes a cantor with organ or piano accompaniment. All music for a Funeral Mass must be sacred and liturgical. The use of secular music is not permitted. All music requests must be approved by the Director of Music Ministries or the Pastor. If you have any questions regarding music please contact Luis J. Cuza, our Director of Music Ministries at (305) 446-9950 Ext. 308 or email at LCuza@cotlf.org.
  • Memorial Masses
    • Unfortunately, the Church of the Little Flower does not offer private Memorial Masses. However, we make available the opportunity for “particular” Mass intentions to be scheduled as part of the liturgical prayer of the Church. Simply contact the parish office to make arrangements.
