At Prout Funeral Home, we have worked with the Bereavement and Music Ministries of Our Lady of the Lake Church to provide this planning guide, which will make navigating the Catholic rite of burial, including the selection of Scripture and music, easier.
WORDS OF REMEMBRANCE. If you have a friend or family member who will offer some words of remembrance, please list their name on the Planning Guide. Please note that the Archdiocese of Newark only permits one person to speak for no more than 3-4 minutes after Holy Communion. The text of the Words of Remembrance should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. by 7 pm the night prior to the Mass. For more detailed information, please review the Newark Archdiocese’s Guidelines.
