I know I should have asked this sooner, but it didn’t seem very urgent until now. Being a convert I’ve only been to one catholic funeral and it was someone I barely knew and a long time ago so I didn’t pay much attention. How on earth do you set up a catholic wake/funeral? It would be for my mother, also a convert, so I’d have to be the coordiantor since I’m the only catholic. Step by step please, I’m totally clueless on this.
Oh and my dad would like his protestant minister, my mother’s former minister before she converted, to preach in addition to the priest. Is this possible?
Also, my mother and I are the ONLY catholics, save one set of distant cousins, in my family. When I had my wedding we did a service because only my mother and I would have been able to have communion and Father thought it was for the best. But funeral masses are always masses, so how would that work with only me being a communicant? :o
Sorry this is so disorganized. It’s just a whirlwind right now in my head.
