COVID-19 Response and Resources:
A Funeral Mass or Funeral Liturgy Outside of Mass may be celebrated with no more than 10 people present.
- 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.
- All the faithful present should wear masks.
- 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.
- Livestreaming of funerals is encouraged to allow more than the small number present to participate.
