Memorial Service

Hello, I am having a memorial service in my home for my Mother who lived with my wife and I for the last five years. My question is there a gratutity due my Priest who comes to my home for the memorial. It may sound a bit weird, but I really don’t know and have made enough mistakes in this whole situation and don’t want to make one last one. Thanks and be blessed of God.

A donation would be a nice thing to do. You are fortunate that a priest will come to your house for this memorial.

God bless you and grant Eternal Rest to your mom.
