There are a number of customs in today’s society that influence how a funeral ceremony is planned. For example, many families have religious preferences, such as planning a Catholic or Jewish service, which have several customs that accompany the funeral services. In Catholic ceremonies, there is usually a priest and the ceremony is held in the church.
