Catholic funeral rites generally consist of three parts:
- Vigil Prayers: A simple, quiet prayer service the evening before the funeral.
- Funeral Liturgy: A reverent service offered for you and the one you love.
- Committal: Prayers at the cemetery. Usually a lunch is held before the committal with time for sharing kind words and memories.
