Suggestions For The Catholic Mass

There are many wonderful hymns that may be used throughout the funeral liturgy.  Some of these hymns are listed below. Please  select one hymn from each of the four groupings. Occasionally, families request a current popular secular song to be played or sung during the Mass.  Unfortunately, songs outside of the parameters allowed by the church are not permitted.
