Unless it is already scheduled and planned, all funeral Masses are suspended. Additionally, wake services at funeral homes are not to be recommended. Priests are allowed to celebrate the “Rite of Committal with Final Commendation” at the graveside. Participation at such services should be limited to immediate family and close friends only, and their number must be in keeping with the limits established by the civil authorities.
A Mass for the repose of the soul of the deceased, as provided for in the Roman Missal, can be added to the parish Mass intentions and offered as soon as reasonably possible under the circumstances, or, if the family desires, a public celebration of this Mass at a later date can be contemplated.
