To arrange a funeral ceremony the first contact is generally made with the Funeral Director who puts in place arrangements with the Church and contacts the Priest. The Priest will meet with the family and will discuss such items as the readings, hymns, prayer of the faithful etc.

Eulogies are not permitted in the Archdiocese of Armagh during the celebration of Mass however please be aware that a suitable arrangement may be that they take place at the graveside or the place of wake prior to burial.
