Catholic Funeral Hymns

Catholic Funeral Hymns

When my mother-in-law passed away, the responsibility fall to me to select the hymns for the Catholic funeral service. This was a somewhat daunting task, selecting Catholic funeral hymns, as I am not Catholic.

Choices had to be made for:

  • Opening Hymn
  • Psalm
  • Song for Offertory
  • Communion Song
  • Recessional

HELP! I contacted my mother-in-law’s fellow Church going friends and asked them for their help in selecting the hymns. I also asked them what some of my mother-in-law’s favorite hymns might have been. These are some of the Catholic funeral hymns that her friends provided to me to choose from;

For the entrance or Opening Hymn, we selected; Jesus Christ Is Risen Today. 

For the Psalm; The Lord Is My Shepherd.

The Offertory: I Heard The Voice Of Jesus

Communion: We Have Been Told

Recessional: Celtic Song of Farewell.
