The aim of this resource is to offer bereaved families assistance in planning a funeral liturgy.
The first page gives a broad overview of what takes place.
The next is a liturgical planning sheet to help families plan the funeral Mass, while the other files are for Old & New Testament readings & sample prayers of the faithful.
Families can choose from the sample prayers of the faithful and/or write their own personal prayers of the faithful – the usual number of prayers of the faithful is 5.
