In the face of death, the Church confidently proclaims that God has created each person for eternal life and that Jesus, the Son of God, by his death and resurrection has broken the chains of sin and death that bound humanity.

Catholic Burial Services

As Catholics, we worship God and offer thanksgiving for the person’s life during the rites of the funeral. We believe He has given us the gift of life and after demise, we can be united with Him after purification. We pray and thank God for the gift of everlasting life, ask for forgiveness of sin for the person who has died.

The Church calls each member of Christ’s Body to care for the dying, to pray for the dead, to comfort those who mourn. As the faithful are called to a ministry of consolation when a member of Christ’s Body dies.

Christian consolation is rooted in that hope that comes from faith in the saving death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Christian hope faces the reality of death and grief but with an attitude of trust

When a Christian dies, the community gathers for a funeral. They say farewell to the person who has died and entrust that person to God’s loving care. They praise and thank God for the gift of a life which has been returned to its Creator. They remember with joy and pain what that person has meant to them.

Catholic funeral rites are:

  • Vigil for the Deceased – The Vigil may be quite informal, where the family and friends of the deceased person pray in the presence of the body in the home, in the Chapel of the Funeral Directors, or in the parish Church on the night before the Funeral Liturgy. The Vigil would include prayers and readings and an opportunity for a relative or friend of the deceased person to give some “words of remembrance” of the one who has died. The Vigil may be celebrated on the night before the funeral liturgy.
