Catholic Funerals

By Funeral-Link New Zealand | Posted: Wednesday February 21, 2018

The purpose of is to give Catholic families the opportunity to plan the contents of the Funeral Mass or Funeral Service.

Making planning easy

The liturgy presented on this site is taken from the “Order of Christian Funerals with Cremation Rite” which has been approved for use and is the most widely used resource used by the Catholic Church in New Zealand. All bible readings on this site have been taken from the “Jerusalem Bible”.

We will guide you through the Funeral Mass and you can make choices about what readings, prayers and hymns can be used. It is very wise to make your choices in consultation with your local Catholic Priest, who will give you good ideas and suggestions as well.

This website has been approved by the Wellington Archdiocese and contains their policy on the Order of Christian Burials. For more information, please visit the Catholic churches website We encourage you to make contact with your local Catholic Priest, as the process of death and dying is an important time for spiritual support for all in the family.
