The funeral rites of the Catholic Church are rooted in the baptismal promise of new life in the sharing of the glory of Christ’s Resurrection. The funeral rites traditionally consist of a Wake Service, The Mass of Christian Burial, and the Graveside Service. Adaptations to these norms are made according to family circumstances and the pastoral needs of the deceased and family.
