A very good friend of many many years passed away last July 10th. She will be cremated and her family have asked me to announce that a Mass will be held a few days after they get her cremains from the funeral home.
The Mass will be held in her parish church with her cremains in an urn.
Before I inform mutual friends, should I call this a Funeral Mass or a Memorial Mass? Her ashes will eventually be brought to her place of birth (overseas) so she can be interred with her siblings and father who have passed before her.
Can anyone clarify this, please? Thank you.
