Funeral Liturgy - Hymn Suggestions


On behalf of those in Music Ministry at St. Catherine of Sweden, may I offer our heartfelt sympathy and the promise of our prayers for you and your family during this difficult time. Below are a few suggestions that would be appropriate for the funeral liturgy. All of the music must be sacred/liturgical. Songs that are nostalgic or secular are best for the funeral home or cemetary. Please select two hymns and write them down on the Liturgy Planning Sheet provided in the packet you will receive from the parish. The parish will also provide a Cantor as well for the funeral Mass. Thank you and may God bless you with his comfort and healing.

Sincerely,
James Skalos, Director of Music and Liturgical Ministries
