Funerals

 

COVID-19 Response and Resources:

A Funeral Mass or Funeral Liturgy Outside of Mass may be celebrated with no more than 10 people present.

  1. This number should be strictly enforced by the pastor, with the assistance of the funeral director. If this small number cannot be adhered to, a priest should offer Funeral Masses without a congregation available to the family via livestream.
  2. All the faithful present should wear masks.
  3. Holy Communion is not to be distributed to the faithful during Funeral Masses. It is fitting to lead the faithful in a Prayer of Spiritual Communion at that time. 
  4. Livestreaming of funerals is encouraged to allow more than the small number present to participate.
