The Funeral Mass
In offering the Mass, we are praying the greatest of all prayers. In this liturgy, we also commend our loved one to the mercy and love of God. You are encouraged to be involved in the preparation of your loved ones funeral liturgy, as we seek strength in promise of the Lord that he will not forget his own.
The Readings at the Mass are always from the Bible, including the Responsorial Psalm which is from the Book of Psalms, and in the Prayers of the faithful, we pray for the deceased, the bereaved and the wider faith community. Members of the family at the Offertory Procession may bring the gifts of bread and wine to the altar which will become for us the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. To comply with the regulations of the Diocese of Meath, eulogies are not permitted in the church.
