    The time immediately following the death of a loved one is difficult and confusing for many reasons. Adding to a familys concern and stress is the need to make decisions regarding a funeral and burial.


    Catholic Etiquette for Funerals is a compassionate and practical guide that spells out:

     - Issues, customs, and regulations involved in planning a Catholic funeral
     - Responsibilities typically expected of immediate family
     - Protocol and etiquette guidelines for those outside the immediate family circle.

    Here are the parts that make up a Catholic Vigil Service, Funeral Liturgy, and Committal.

    Here are the Churchs teaching about praying for the dead, organ donation, cremation, eulogies, commemorative holy cards, appropriate Christian symbols at a service, and inter-Communion during a funeral Mass.

    Step-by-step, author Kay Lynn Isca describes the roles of the parish priest, funeral director, pall bearers, ushers, readers, Eucharistic ministers, and more.
