Your parish family is here to help you in this moment of grief. We know that planning a funeral can be overwhelming. Our parish partners with your funeral home to ease this burden. 


To begin planning a funeral at St. Eleanor, contact a funeral home. One of our parish priests will contact you to set up a meeting in the Parish Office to plan the funeral liturgy.

Memorial Masses can be arranged after a funeral Mass has been celebrated at another church. For more information on setting up a Memorial Mass, call the parish office at 610-489-1647.


Norms for cremation can be found here.
