Roman Catholic is arguably one of the most ceremonious religions when it comes to holding a funeral service. For Roman Catholics, funeral rites are sacred and must be done properly so their deceased loved ones will be able to rest in peace.
Catholic funeral service typically involves masses, vigils, reading psalms, singing hymns, and other ceremonies that should be strictly followed. The funeral service can be held in a chapel, in the church, or in other venues fitting for a funeral. A catholic funeral service usually lasts for few days and even weeks.
A Catholic funeral is also very decorative. The venue is usually ornamented with white flowers and other mourning floras. Religious symbols are also being placed on the altar or around the venue. A casket or an urn can be used to shelter the deceased depending on the family’s choice of burial.
A eulogy may or may not be included in a catholic funeral. Sometimes, a day within the funeral service will be allotted for such an event. Other times, masses will be held to pray over the deceased instead of a eulogy.

Below are the additional details and items regarding our Roman Catholic funeral packages:
Roman Catholics follow a strict tradition when it comes to conducting their funeral rites. The goal of the bereaved family is to properly send off their deceased loved one back to God’s place in heaven. To fulfill this task, the bereaved family must follow certain ceremonies.
First, a vigil will be offered for the soul of the deceased. The deceased will then be put in a casket or be cremated depending on his/her wishes or the family’s decision. The casket or urn will be presented to the church to where the priest will give the deceased his final sacrament. Prayers, reading of psalms, and singing hymns will ensue until the day of interment.
Throughout the duration of the funeral rites, flowers will be offered in honor of the deceased. Friends and other relatives will attend few more masses to show their condolences to the bereaved family. The interment is usually held through a procession.
With the Roman Catholic being the largest Christian denomination in the world, there is no surprise of the growing needs of a family seeking a fitting Catholic funeral service for their deceased loved one.
A Catholic funeral is a religious service with the funeral liturgy/Catholic Mass being held as a central form of ceremony with special prayers, sacred readings and hymns offered for the deceased as well as the bereaved family. Since Catholic/Christian strongly believe in the afterlife, this form of celebration and ceremonial rites help the deceased find forgiveness and appeal before the grace and mercy of God.
Much of the Catholic funeral traditions are held and led by a Catholic priest by delivering sermons and reading liturgical passages that are focused to commemorate and celebrate the life of the departed during their life on Earth. Much of the Catholic funeral mass comprises rites and practices such as a recital of the Holy Rosary, reading of God’s Word (Bible), procession of the priest, etc.
Catholic funeral services are often accompanied by a vigil service and Catholic mass that features the procession of the Holy Communion with a gloomy and yet respectable atmosphere. In this solemn occasion, visitors are expected to dress accordingly and pay respect to the departed as well as comfort the bereaved through prayers or consoling words.
Most of the Catholic funeral packages usually include a casket or coffin, tentage which will be served as the funeral ground for the service, floral decorations, ash collection service (though this may depend if the family opt for cremation instead of burial), embalming and makeup for the deceased, transport and Catholic decoration for the rites.
Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.

A typical Catholic funeral service in Singapore starts off with bringing the deceased back to church for a funeral mass, followed by a funeral procession to Mandai Crematorium or Choa Chu Kang burial grounds.
At a point in the funeral mass, attendees will be invited to the front to participate in the Holy Communion. If you are not a Catholic, it is okay to remain seated during this time.
A full funeral mass lasts about 45 minutes. Sometimes it may be shortened depending on circumstances
A Catholic funeral mass is a sermon that is usually conducted by a Catholic priest, usually including snippets of the deceased’s life into the sermon. Families who wish to deliver eulogies may wish to do so during the funeral mass. For Catholics, a funeral mass is typically conducted in the church that they belong to.
Like most funerals in Singapore, it is best to come dressed in plain clothing(without loud patterns or logos) that is not too casual. You may follow along in their prayers and songs if you know them.
Catholic funerals are typically open casket.
