When making funeral arrangements, one must make arrangements with the priest before contacting and finalizing arrangements with the funeral home. Eulogies only allowed in the funeral home or at the graveside.
Our Roman Catholic Faith teaches the infinite value of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for the repose of the soul of a departed one. Roman Catholic Church law states that the Holy Mass of Christian burial is properly celebrated in the Church.
(Code of Canon Law: 1177 § I)
