WHAT ARE THE CURRENT GUIDELINES FOR FUNERALS ?

  • A Funeral Service of the Word and Commendation (but not a Requiem Mass) can take place in any Church that is ready for opening from Monday 6th July. 
  • To prevent the possibility of infections spreading these should be small family gatherings, bearing in mind the agreed safe capacity of the church.
  • Coffins cannot be touched and must not have any objects placed on them.
  • Holy Water may be used, but not incense.

The Archdiocese has produced a prayer resource for those who cannot attend funerals. Click here  and has sourced some resources for those bereavedhttps://www.liverpoolcatholicresources.com/bereavement

Redemptorist Publications  have recorded a Requiem Mass which you may take comfort from.
