What is Catholic Burial?
A Catholic burial is series of rites used by all Catholic parishes to commemorate the life and death of a member of the community. They include the Vigil (the wake), the Funeral Mass and the Rite of Committal (the burial). These celebrate the life of the deceased and offer comfort to their loved ones and there are variations of these rites depending on circumstances. Your parish staff can help you plan a funeral just as The Catholic Cemeteries is here to help guide you through the burial process.
