Home / Worship & Sacraments / Funerals


If you have experienced the death of a loved one, we extend our deepest sympathies to you, your family, and friends.

Prior to calling the funeral home, please call the parish Liturgy & Music Director to determine a date and time for the funeral and to schedule a time to meet with the Pastor and / or the Liturgy & Music Director to plan the funeral liturgy (scripture readings, music, etc.). Dates and times should not be published in the media until after meeting with the pastor to ensure availability.

If you are considering cremation, review our frequently asked questions.

Holy Infant will have an on-site columbarium as part of our new church building initiative; pre-sales are now being accepted. For questions or details, please contact the parish's Operations & Finance Director or our Liturgy & Music Director.

In the meantime, there are two Catholic-specific interment options in our immediate area: the cemetery at St. Matthew parish in northern Durham and the columbarium at St. Thomas More parish in Chapel Hill.  Please contact each parish directly with any questions you may have.

At this time of loss and grief, we encourage you to call and let us know how we can assist you.
