The Catholic Funeral

The Church's Ministry of Hope

This comprehensive reference is an essential handbook for planning the end-of-life arrangements for a loved one.

An important guide for understanding and creating meaningful funeral arrangements.

From his extensive experience of helping families during this difficult period, Fr. Aridas provides a practical checklist for making funeral arrangements, a guide to planning a meaningful liturgy – with appropriate selections of readings and reflections for the Mass of Christian Burial – a summary of the Church’s teaching on life after death, and a brief introduction to the major stages of the grieving process. He offers this book “as a source of ready information to help you in time of need.”
