Copies of the booklet, Celebrating a Catholic Funeral – Guidelines for the Diocese of Raphoe, can be found in the porch area of the Church.  This publication gives a good overview and explanation of the various strands involved in a Catholic Funeral – liturgy, theology, sacred music and the purpose of each in commending our loved ones to the mercy of God.

  • Music for the Funeral Mass must be sacred (ie Hymns).  Secular songs may be played in the graveyard if you so wish.
  • Should you like a eulogy, a good occasion for this might be at the wakehouse, afterwards in the graveyard or at the refreshments following the burial.  “The Funeral Mass in the Church is neither the appropriate occasion nor place to insert a speech or eulogy.”  (No 5, Diocesan Guidelines Booklet)
