A Look at Catholic Funeral Rites

If you have lost a loved one who belonged to the Catholic faith, you may be tasked with providing a Catholic funeral for him. A funeral home in San Mateo can help you arrange the specific rites for the deceased.

Catholic funerals typically have three components: vigil service, funeral liturgy, and rite of committal. The vigil service gives friends and family members the opportunity to gather and commemorate a lost loved one. This part of a funeral ceremony might include praying for the deceased and reciting sections of the Bible. The funeral liturgy is a worship service that may include a formal Mass. Burial services typically include a rite of committal, which is the last part of Catholic funeral rites. At the cemetery, loved ones can say their goodbyes and final prayers for the deceased.
