How do I plan a Catholic funeral?


My husband is terminally ill and I want to find information to help us plan his funeral/memorial. He plans to be cremated. Any suggestions for resource material?


Your husband and you will be in our prayers here at Catholic Answers and we ask readers to pray for you as well. The book linked below should be helpful. God bless.
