Q: I am checking to see which book is now current for funerals. I saw in our sacristy a red cover 2018 book for funerals that was used by another priest. However, I use the 1998 green book. My pastor stated we should likely use the red book, but I don’t recall seeing this requested change over to the red book.
A: Here’s a post from last year on my blog: https://paulturner.org/order-of-christian-funeral/
Since then, I’ve been using the 2018 book, and I do find it helpful. I recommend switching, but this has not been made mandatory.
