The Best CatholicFuneral Service in Sydney
Catholics believe in life after death. The souls will go to heaven, hell or purgatory, depending on their deeds during their lifetime.
Catholic funerals in Sydney are perhaps one of the most common. It is because Catholicism is Australia’s largest religious denomination according to the census. However, even though there are a growing number of funeral directors who specialise in Catholic funerals, there are a number of steps which may inadvertently be overlooked or not performed as per direction by the orthodox school of thought. Not so at Paul Lahood. Our Catholic funeral packages are designed to provide our clients with the complete orthodox catholic ritual. So, everything from the Mass of Christian Burial, to prayers for the diseased and final burial rights are done as per direction by the church which reflects the main belief in the resurrection.
The entire ritual is mainly designed to praise God, to whom our dead relative is sent, commending his great love for man. The fact that the catholic funeral praises God, and dearly expresses love for the deceased which is one reason why a growing number of people choose this over any other ritual option.
The Introductory Rites are the most important of any catholic funeral because it is when the body is allowed into the church by the community. It is also a time for the community to gather in order to come and pray for support for the family and the honour of the deceased. It is during this time that the casket or coffin is doused with holy water, after which a pall is placed over it. It is important that loved ones think about their choice of readings. It is not unusual to choose a reading either from the old or new testament of the Bible as well as a Gospel reading. The General Intercessions are yet another opportunity to further personalise this reading for the deceased based on their life. These are steps that we help our clients with every step of the way.
