Keeping consistent with your Catholic beliefs, it is important for family members to clearly record their wishes for a Catholic funeral service. This entails several elements such as:
- Which mortuary to use.
- Where the Vigil will be held.
- Prayers to be said at the Vigil, the Funeral Mass and the Committal Service.
- Music, flowers, and where the person would like their final resting place to be.
This unique program was designed to ease the financial burden for families, and to make sure a person’s final wishes for their funeral are known and are guided by the pastoral care of the Church.
