Flor McCarthy’s Funeral Liturgies met with great acclaim as it filled a distinct need when it was first published in 1994. Over the years since then, he has worked on developing a substantial amount of new material as well as greatly revising the original work.
Celebrating Funerals is the fruit of all this work. It offers 26 funeral services, each on a specific theme – half of them written to refer to the phase of life at which a person died. The book also includes four Remembrance Liturgies, as well as four Rites of Committal, 12 Prayer Services, and 16 Reflections, many of which did not appear in the earlier work.
