Your guide to Catholic Funeral Services
Funeral services are a cornerstone of the Catholic faith – an opportunity to honour the dead and comfort the grieving. If the time comes for you to say goodbye to a loved one, we’ll stand by your side and help you plan a beautiful Catholic funeral service that celebrates their life and spirit.
Where are Catholic funerals typically held?
A traditional Catholic funeral takes place in a Catholic church, often the same one the person who’s passed attended while they were alive. However, it can be held in any Catholic church of the family’s choosing.
How long does a Catholic funeral last?
The duration of Catholic funerals varies depending on which traditions are carried out. Some Catholic funerals don’t offer Holy Communion, and some do not follow the traditional funeral mass either. Still, you can expect the funeral to last 45–90 minutes. Guests may attend one or all of the services, depending on how close they were with the person who’s died.
