If you are the person given the role to plan a funeral due to the loss of a loved one, or perhaps you are attending a service for a family member or friend, here are some explanations of terms and situations you may find yourself having to address.

Firstly, you will need to decide if the funeral service will be a requiem mass or a funeral service. The difference being, that a requiem mass will have communion where only the catholic mourners will come forward to take the bread and wine from the priest.

You will need to arrange family or friends to read the prayers of the faithful and someone to read a eulogy at a time suitable to the priest.  This is usually read before the mass or after.  The same will be said if there is a DVD presentation.

The funeral is a ceremony of proven worth and value for those who mourn. It provides an opportunity for the survivors and others who share in the loss to express their love, respect, grief and appreciation for a life that has been lived.

No death is easy to deal with whether it is a friend or family member they are all a very personal experience.
