Funerals and Baptisms

Mission Santa Clara is not a parish, but a student chapel for Santa Clara University.  As such, requests for pastoral services should be directed to your local parish.  Generally, funerals are not held in the Mission.  Exceptions are made in rare circumstances wherein the deceased, and only the deceased, was a sitting member on one of the 5 SCU Boards.  If the person whose funeral you would like to arrange does not meet this criteria, we urge you to contact your local parish as an alternative.
