Planning the Funeral Mass - Readings and Hymns
Eulogies are not permitted in church. Family or friends may be invited to share such a testimony at the funeral home, at the cemetery, or at the memorial luncheon.
Note on Cremated Remains: The cremated remains must always be treated with respect, the same respect we attribute to the body. After the funeral they are to be interred or entombed, preferably in a Catholic cemetery, mausoleum or columbarium. The Rite of Committal should accompany this action. They should never be separated or scattered or disposed in any way other than a dignified interment or entombment.
