The Authority of the Order of Christian Funerals

Funeral Policy

  1. The only canonically approved liturgical rite in English is the Order of Christian Funerals (1989).
  2. The only canonically approved liturgical rite in Spanish is the Ritual de Exequias Cristianas (2002).
  3. Liturgical books in other languages must be approved by their proper Episcopal Conferences. Ministers in ethnic communities should take care that they are using the current approved translation of the Latin Ordo Exsequiarium.
