Catholic Funerals – Face the Reality of Death but with an Attitude of Trust
Divinity Funerals – The Best Catholic Funerals
As Catholics, we worship God and offer thanksgiving for the person’s life during the rites of the funeral. We believe He has given us the gift of life and after demise, we can be united with Him after purification. We pray and thank God for the gift of everlasting life, ask for forgiveness of sin for the person who has died.
The Church calls each member of Christ’s Body to care for the dying, to pray for the dead, to comfort those who mourn. As the faithful are called to a ministry of consolation when a member of Christ’s Body dies.
Christian consolation is rooted in that hope that comes from faith in the saving death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Christian hope faces the reality of death and grief but with an attitude of trust.
Complete services for arranging Catholic funerals
At Divinity Funerals, we offer all the services that our clients need for Catholic burials. Our funeral directors have immense experience and a great understanding of the rites that the Catholic Church performs for these ceremonies. Therefore, they can always provide all the guidance to our clients – and that too with the dignity and care that such proceedings deserve. We would always make sure that our clients bid farewell to their loved ones in the best way possible. We help them follow all the tenets related to Catholic funerals to the fullest.
Planning the funeral for our clients
We specialise in planning distinguishable Catholic funerals focussed on our shared reverent hope. Often, families get help from members of the Church for suggestions and help in planning the funeral. We always understand that people are not in the best mental state in such situations, and so they hold on to all the help that comes their way. Having someone from the Church also makes sure that they follow all the rites in this context, as well as having someone that understands their beliefs to lean on. We would always suggest our clients get help from professional funeral directors. This is because they have sufficient experience in working with the people and organisations to give them a comprehensive funeral service.
Our funeral directors have performed many Catholic funerals. So, we know how what is expected and will help you put together all that is required. They know the rituals and rites they have to perform to complete the Mass of Christian Burial the right way. This includes the family Vigil too. We have connections with local clergy and parishes. These associations help us get a minister who can conduct the burial service and Mass along with prayers for the one who has departed and bless the coffin with incense and Holy water. The rite of committal, which is the final ritual, happens at the burial site. A priest also attends this part of the funeral to perform this.
The best Catholic burial and cremation services
From 1963 Catholics have found it suitable to cremate the deceased, provided the remains rest in a sacred place such as the cemetery of a church. The guidelines normally outline that the remains aren’t separated or put into mementos. Our clients still have a few options that they can choose in this context. For example, if they want to bury their loved ones below the ground, they can choose from monumental graves. Alternatively, we can offer them the likes of the crypt, mausoleum interments, and family vaults. We have a considerable range of dignified caskets and coffins to select from.
