The first two articles on this page were written by Catholic Courier staff. Please contact our newsroom via e-mail or phone (585-529-9530 or 800-600-3628) to suggest that we write an obituary on a prominent member of the local Catholic community who has died recently.

Beneath those two articles is a box containing a sample of obituaries readers can post themselves for a modest fee. There is no limit on the length of these obituaries, which include a photo, guest book and social media tools. Obituaries posted by readers also will appear in thumbnail form in the Catholic Courier's print edition, referring readers to the full-length online version. Click the green leaf icon to begin.
