Funeral Director Joe Tomasso and Joan Workmaster, retired director of the diocesan office of liturgy, will speak on Catholic Church teaching and funeral pre-planning on Thursday, Oct. 20. Planning the funeral liturgy will be the topic Oct. 27, and the discussion will be led by the Cathedral Community’s Parochial Vicar Father Edison Tayag, Pastoral Associate Rose Davis, Music Minister Ginny Miller, Workmaster and Cathy Spoto, chairwoman of the Cathedral Community Ministry of Consolation.
