Arranging a Catholic Funeral

There are a number of details that differentiate a catholic funeral from other types of funeral services. According to catholic funeral tradition, once the body is placed in the casket, a crucifix should be placed in the lid of the casket. Typically a kneeling rail is placed in front of the casket so that friends and family can kneel down next to the casket and say a prayer.
