The death of a loved one is a shock and planning a funeral can feel like a burden in a time of stress and grief. Created for pastoral ministers, deacons, pastors, and parish leaders, this book is a helpful resource to pastorally accompany Catholic funeral planning as a supplement to the Order of Christian Funerals—either in advance of or after the death of a loved one. It is also a comforting planning tool for Catholics to have at home when facing aging or illness. Keep copies of this essential resource in your chapel or hand them out to families after an anointing.
