During the funeral Mass a total of three readings are recommended. Family or friends of the deceased are welcome to participate by presenting the first and second reading during the Mass and the priest or deacon will normally present the gospel.
When considering who will present the reading it is important to keep in mind that the person you select should have had some previous public speaking experience and that the individual would feel comfortable addressing the congregation during a highly emotional time.

During a funeral Mass there are four opportunities for hymns:
The Entrance Hymn: (When we process into the church),
The Offertory Hymn Played at the presentation of the Gifts,
The Communion Hymn Played while communion is received
The Recessional Hymn as we process out of the church.
The link below will provide you with a listing and sample of a variety of approved secular music selections traditionally used for a funeral Mass. However depending on the location of the service, and the ability of the organist some songs may not be available and ultimately must be approved by the pastor and or musician of the church. If there is a particular song you would like for the Mass that is not listed below please let one of our staff members know and we will contact the church or organist for approval.
