b) A funeral can be held in church with the body or without the body.
c) The priest will visit the funeral home to prayer with the family. If the priest cannot come to the funeral parlor, he may send some of his parishioners, members of the parish prayer group, to say a special prayer for the deceased person.
d) A funeral can be celebrated with or without Holy Mass. If a Funeral is celebrated at a funeral home the Mass cannot be celebrated; it will be a funeral rite outside Holy Mass.
