Funeral Ministries

Please contact Msgr. Patrick Gaalaas for assistance at 918-299-9406.



As you plan the funeral for someone close to you, know that we all hold you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.


As you choose music for the funeral service, please help us locate unfamiliar music by providing sheet music, or at least full name of composition and name of the composer.  We’ll do our best.
Because funeral stipends are considered part of the St. Bernard musicians’ salaries, and because we have much invested in our sound system and music instruments, use of musicians outside of the parish of
St. Bernard is not permitted without permission of the Organist/Music Director.
When choosing music for the funeral liturgy, please remember the sacredness of the occasion.  Non-sacred favorites can be used in the reception.
Standard Fees:

Organist $175

  Cantor    $175

  Rehearsal with musicians outside of the parish           $50
