Funeral Service

Catholics hold a Prayer Vigil reception according to the traditions of a Catholic Funeral service, which is also a funeral wake. It is where families and friends can look at the deceased’s coffin and gather to pray together. A advantage of using this approach is that it provides the family with their first viewing of the coffin and allows them to have some private time before the Catholic funeral service with their special someone. During this time, mourners gather in memory and pray with rosaries and, as a large family, give prayers together.

Our Catholic funeral services in Singapore can be either a funeral Mass, also known as a Requiem Mass, or a funeral liturgy, depending on the family’s preferences. There is prayer and sacred communion in a funeral mass. The mourners will be at the church for the communion process, where they will get the body of the deceased in the coffin, and then the communion phase will start. If the family instead prefers the funeral liturgy, then the holy communion will not be included.

Typically held during the wake and especially during the last evening of the wake, this service is the time for family , relatives and friends to gather, remember the deceased, remember special times and pray for his soul. During the Vigil Service, songs not suitable for Mass are often played as well as the favourite songs of the deceased. During this stage of the funeral rite, eulogies are not encouraged, as having a series of them during the liturgy of the funeral would interrupt and undermine the dignity of the liturgy of the funeral.

Overview

In general, a Roman Catholic funeral serves 2 purposes; to ensure that funeral rites are performed for the dead soul and to console the family and make them pray with relatives and the rest of the Church for the dead.

Funeral Liturgy

The liturgy, often observed during the Funeral Mass or Requiem Mass, may be celebrated on its own at times when mass should not be offered, such as Good Friday, Holy Week, etc. For the deceased person, this is the central and most important rite and its object is manifold.

The Committal

This normally takes place at the burial site or crematorium where, in the expectation of rising again during the afterlife, the body is committed to rest. Chaired by a priest or deacon, family and friends will often meet for the last time to offer their prayers for the deceased. This final rite of farewell gives the Catholic Funeral a meaningful end.

Experienced Priest

An experienced Catholic priest who heads the congregation for our funeral services. The prayer ceremony and other basic Catholic rituals will be led by him. Mourners may also call for tributes to the dearly departed during the vigil.
