Review:

As a resource to help a parish liturgy committee look at how funerals are conducted in the parish, Curley’s booklet could be very useful, encouraging the local Church to minister more directly to the community.Music and Liturgy

Fr. Terence Curley’s latest book Planning the Catholic Funeral sets the guidelines for mourners to plan the rituals for a meaningful funeral and to celebrate the life of a loved one. His experience with ministering to the grieving shows readers the Catholic Church supports them in their time of loss. Stephen Bartholomew, R.F.D., R.E. Gately Funeral Home Melrose, Massachusetts

Father Curley has written a detailed and sensitive guide for implementing the Order of Christian Funerals both for those who are planning a funeral following the death of a loved one and for those who wish to plan far in advance of death. A lucid description of the roles of those who minister during the funeral journey and options are clearly presented. This book is a valuable asset to both the family and to anyone in the Ministry of Consolation who assists the family in the preparations for the prayerful and meaningful celebration of the funeral ritual. The potential for story telling and story writing help the grief process and this tool can be utilized in the teachable moments occasioned by a death. Appendices include a Scripture Selection Guide, a Music List, and a Summary of Requests and Information. This little book is a 'must' for ministers of consolation.Journey

The use of this book will give the bereaved families the solace necessary to accept death in a truly Christian manner.Catholic Library World

I would strongly recommend every funeral home obtain a copy and discuss it with their local Parish priest.The Australian Funeral Director

This booklet is an excellent guide provided by the Catholic Church to assist Catholic families in preparing a traditional Catholic funeral from the church.The Australian Funeral Director

Preparing a funeral liturgy means talking with a family that may not be able to communicate well through the grief or understand the process. Fr. Terence Curley's book Planning the Catholic Funeral is written in a workbook-like format that makes it easier for both priest and family to work with.Crux of the News

This is an invaluable resource for individuals and families, and a tremendously useful tool for parish staff involved in bereavement ministry.Carol Blank, Writing Works
