Our Catholic funeral services include:

  • Vigil or wake: The viewing usually occurs at the home of the loved one or funeral home, mostly the night before the funeral. The body is prepared for viewing as per Catholic funeral rites and the priest along with the mourners recite the Rosary and pray for the peace of the departed soul.
  • Funeral: This is the main funeral ceremony that takes place in the church. It may or may not involve a mass. The priest prays and blesses the casket, accompanied by hymns and music.
  • Committal rites: This is the last rite that involves burial or the interment of the body. The body is carried to the cemetery and amidst prayers, the mourners can choose to sprinkle earth on the coffin before burying.
