Funerals

The death of a loved one is a difficult time. At Our Lady of The Lake, we're here to support you through prayer and pastoral care. When planning a funeral, we ask that you immediately contact the parish office so that we may help you make funeral arrangements. Some of the materials on this page will be helpful to you in the planning process. Click on the links below to access the different resources. You will receive a Funeral Planning Booklet containing much of this information when you have your funeral planning meeting at the parish.

Our clergy and staff will make every effort to plan a specific date for a Funeral Service, Requiem Mass, and Cemetery arrangements. Most funerals are scheduled at 11:00 AM to be able to offer a courtesy luncheon reception immediately following the service. Funerals are not scheduled on Sundays. 

To begin the funeral arrangements and schedule a date and time, please call the parish office at 503-636-7687.

Sacred Heart Cemetery

Our Lady of the Lake Parish is blessed to have its own sacred burial grounds for its members and their families.  It is lovingly and carefully maintained by a group of parishioners, The Cemetery Committee, committed to serving the faithful with a consecrated place of burial.

Sacred Heart Cemetery is located just three miles south of town on Stafford Road on land donated by Mr. Prosser in the late eighteen hundreds.  Many of the early settlers of Lake Oswego are buried in Sacred Heart Cemetery, including George Rogers and some of his family.

Sacred Heart Cemetery has spaces available for ground burials as well as Columbarium niches for ashes.

Members of the parish who wish to plan ahead may call the Parish Office with questions or to arrange for a personal visit with the Cemetery Manager.

Planning ahead gives you:

  • More time to research and consider your options without a rush.
  • A sense of accomplishment knowing arrangements are made.
  • Fewer family concerns – less to worry about.
  • Financial benefit – lock in at current price.
