As Christians, Catholics believe that a person’s soul lives on after passing. As such, a traditional Catholic funeral centres on prayers for the deceased soul – through a range of ceremonies, such as a vigil, funeral mass, and committal – so that the soul can move on to the afterlife.
Our trusted funeral directors, John and Vicki Musumeci, were raised in the Catholic faith. They are intimately familiar with the traditions and customs that are held at Catholic funerals. As your director they will listen to you, take care of the finer details, and make sure the final service respects your faith and wishes.
As a proud partner of the Catholic Cemeteries and Crematoria (CCC) organisation, you will enjoy premium access to a range of services and facilities, including four cemetery locations, burial plots, cremation facilities, priests, deacons, and staff.
Your funeral director will assist and advise you on planning the right Catholic funeral for you. They will make sure the proper Catholic funeral rites are followed, including your personal wishes – with your choice of burial or cremation, embalming, burying of ashes, holding a Prayer Vigil, and either hosting a funeral Mass or Liturgy.
If you wish to host a Vigil prior to the service, we can arrange this at home, the funeral home, or a church. There, mourners will be encouraged to pray in remembrance. You may wish to arrange a priest or deacon yourself, or one can be arranged for you.
Funerals of Compassion is here to make the planning process easy for you. You will have access to four different cemetery locations across Sydney, including: Rookwood, Liverpool, Kemps Creek and North Rocks. Each location is meticulously maintained, and offers plenty of spacious and beautiful resting places for your loved one.
Because no two services are ever alike, you will have the freedom to personalise every aspect of your service, including your choice of traditional music, stationary, local and imported coffins (with additional Catholic symbols), memorial books, hymns, and anything else to make the service memorable.
