Final Committal is the final part of the Catholic funeral service and is held at the graveside or crematorium. The rite of committal is designed to help the family and friends in the difficult moment of letting go, the closure of a mortal life. The rite begins with a short invitation, scripture verse and prayer over the place of committal. Once the body of the deceased has been committed, the Catholic funeral rite concludes with prayers of intercession for the deceased and a prayer over the people. The liturgical rite in the Order of Christian Funerals that is used for cremation is the same and that used for burials.
