The sacred and communal nature of our Catholic Funeral Celebrations requires careful planning in the selection of music. This planning will insure the ability of all those gathered to actively participate in the celebration. Because of the sacredness of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, secular instrumental or vocal music, or the use of recorded music of any kind may not be used.
This music listed in the document below is acceptable for Catholic funerals at St. Augustine. Because the Funeral Liturgy is Communal Prayer, we ask that all music selections come from either of our Hymnals. Please contact Jared Post, the Director of Music, if you have any questions.
