Directives of the Diocese of Meath for Funeral Masses


Eulogies are not to be part of the Funeral Mass. These can take place in the Funeral Home or in the Cemetery, after the burial.

Readings at the Funeral Mass must be taken from the Lectionary and music must be appropriate. Songs, poems and texts devoid of a Christian content are out of place.

A post-Communion reflection of a prayerful nature can serve to enhance the Liturgy.

Expressions of thanks to those who supported or cared for the deceased can be included in the Prayers of the Faithful.
