Our Question of the Week comes from our Facebook page and was asked by CatholicMom.com contributor Nelly Guajardo:
This week I accompanied my husband to a viewing. I honestly didn't know what to do there. Most of the services I have attended have been Catholic, with a rosary, prayer, a eulogy. Never have I attended a service without a minister, deacon, pastor or clergy. My question: have you ever attended something similar? What did you do or what should a Catholic do?
