Catholic funerals observe many rites and traditions, and there are several choices to be made when planning, including the reading of Bible passages, music, and special prayers.
For a Catholic service, cremains are buried or placed in an above ground niche. Before cremation, you can have a viewing with an open casket, or a wake with a closed casket. You can choose to have a mass or not. In addition to the mass, you can also hold a vigil, a powerful moment of reflection for friends and family.
Vigils, wakes and viewings are creative ways to personalize your remembrance. You might play your loved one’s favorite music at a wake, and eulogize with shared stories. You can display cherished objects and photos to help tell the life story of the deceased.
We will also assist you in choosing a cemetery, whether a Catholic cemetery or another type. It is our honor to help you utilize all the options for a Catholic service in the ways that best help you.
