Rosary will begin at 12:00 Noon
Funeral Mass will follow the Rosary.
In moving forward with our ever-changing pandemic status, we continue to reassess our processes to ensure we are doing our best to provide the safest, most welcoming environment for all to attend Mass at St. Rose.
Due to Covid restrictions, seating will be directed into the 1st Floor (main body) of the Church from the Handicap ramp, not the front doors of the Church. Please arrive 15-20 minutes before noon. The Rosary begins at noon followed by Mass. Ushers will direct you through the double doors at the top of the Handicap ramp on 54th Ave. We will follow a first-come / first-served seated entry into the Church for Mass, with respect to priority seating for immediate family members. Once we reach the maximum seating allowed, overflow seating will be directed down to the gymnasium.
We appreciate and thank you!

Funerals During COVID-19 outbreak
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak in Michigan and restrictions that impact the funeral profession, we recommend consumers consider the following:
We remain committed and prepared to safely care for the families we serve during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Whenever possible, we will continue to enable families to participate in the rituals that are most important to them.
According to the CDC, there is no known risk associated with being in the same room at a funeral or visitation service with the body of someone who died of confirmed or suspected COVID-19.
Depending on a family’s preferences, their loved one can be safely embalmed. Families may choose either burial or cremation as usual.
There is no state or local directive canceling any visitation and/or funeral services, although visiting hours and ceremonies are still subject to the latest safety guidelines.
At Heeney-Sundquist we recognize our responsibility to protect the health of those we are privileged to serve. We will continue to guide families, as we always have, in ways they can meaningfully commemorate the life of their loved ones while adhering to the guidance issued by federal, state, and local public health officials.
THANK YOU for your understanding and for helping us provide the safe level of service to which our community and clientele are accustomed.
COVID-19 Update: All Cemetery locations are currently open serving families. All services can have a maximum of 25 people in attendance.
