Here, when a member of the Knights of Columbus or his spouse dies, the Knights pick one evening of the wake to pray the Rosary and it’s announced to the community. Sometimes the family will say that’s all they want and there is no Vigil but often one precedes the other.
In the community where I grew up, the Vigil is unknown and so are the prayers before closing the casket. From my experience when Mom & Dad died the priest will show up unexpectedly, say Order of Christian Funerals’ ‘Prayers when the family first gathers in the presence of the body’, without involving anyone at all. But in my present parish when we pray that prayer the family is invited to be involved in the placing of Christian symbols, in the reading, etc. and it’s always planned as well as we can with the family.
Of course I grew up with wakes that took place in the home and there people would pray the Rosary every couple of hours around the clock.
