Scripture:  Funeral Readings

The family may select the first and second readings as well as the Gospel from those provided in The Order of Christian Funerals. The first reading is taken from the Old Testament options, and the second is selected from the New Testament options. The family may also choose lectors for the first and second readings. The Gospel will be proclaimed by a priest or deacon.

The bereavement minister will provide a copy of the selected readings for you to give to the person chosen to read the Scriptures. A copy of the readings will also be in a binder on the ambo at the funeral Mass.
