Parish Funeral Team

When a death in the parish becomes known, the Parish Priest normally visits the house and spends time with the relatives of the person who has died. Should they indicate that they would
like some help with preparation of the readings for the funeral Mass, the PP suggests that a member of the funeral team provide that help.

Should that offer be accepted, a member of the team arranges to call on the family to help them with the choice of readings, the prayers of the faithful and with any other aspects of the
funeral Mass that may be of concern.

Subsequently, the member of the team will liaise with the celebrant of the funeral Mass and make any other arrangements that may have been agreed.
