Our family and friends of late Damien would like to extend our greatest appreciation towards Jeffrey & team for their... impeccable professionalism and service rendered. They are patient and provide compassion with a personal touch all the way from our initial call to them. All coordination was perfect and the wake was ready within a short period of time. As it was our first time losing a dear family member, they provided advice and recommendation along the way as we were feeling quite lost. All conversation and pricings were clear and open, with no hidden cost at all. It was all written down and documented with a file provided for keeping our important documents.The setup was very modern and it was a beautifully designed wake. Most of our friends and relatives who had attended our brother's wake were impressed by Embrace Funeral Services. They even came up with an online obituary where we could share it conveniently. Despite Jeffrey's busy schedule, he made the effort to drop by every day to ensure things were running smoothly. Our family were not good with words and speeches but the team help us with our farewell speech and it was indeed a very meaningful one.Not forgetting his powerful team who assisted us in the 5 days wake. Aloysius, who helped in the night vigil and guided me with the preparation of breakfast & prayers to my late brother. Jasmine, who took the initiative to decorate my brother's coffin on the last night of the wake and provided photos for our memory. Spencer, who ensured the cleanliness of the altar & wake area and refill of refreshment in the fridge.I sincerely recommend Embrace Funeral Services if you are reading this review. Wishing the team all the best in their future endeavors.read more

Special heartfelt thanks to the team. As my mum passed away from sudden heart attack and it was already very very late... at night and after being asked about the body handling method as i was being led to register for a death certificate at the hospital, i was in a total state of confusion. I hadn’t even recovered from the upsetting news but am having to make decision on behalf of my late mother. as i sat at the counter after 5 mins, I decided i will drop Jeffery a message to see if he could take up this case. He called back immediately which was very appreciated and provided guidance in handling the procedure and arrived pretty quickly at the hospital.The team really guided me along the entire funeral and they were a very polite, approachable team. The setup was also very nicely done, and had gained many compliments from my relatives who attended the wake, with most saying they were very impressed.Once again, many thanks to Jeffrey , Guan Yin and Alouysius for all the help rendered during this difficult period for me and my dad.read more

A pleasant experience with Embrace Funeral Services team in the midst of shock, chaos & loss of a loved one. Jeffrey's... dad stepped in to help me at the hospital while Jeffrey was engaged with another client. Both Jeffrey and dad guided me every step of the journey with good questions and recommendations.I was very impressed with the efficiency and professional complete set up of the memorial hall (including embalming, make-up and dress up of my late father) within a short 2 hours. The hall was serene, pleasant and simple, just as I had wanted.Sea burial amidst rain and choppy water was also carried out professionally by Jeffrey's dad and assistant. Again we were guided to say final goodbye with a prayer of exaltation before lowering the bones into the ocean.Jeffrey's team helped to capture the final journey with photographs of significant moments, without me asking.I am thankful for the helpful reviews by others that I could meet such a professional funeral director. I hope my review here will help others select an undertaker team who is helpful, competent and professional while grieving.God bless.read more

Catholic Funeral Rites & Customs

Roman Catholics have a strong belief that a deceased’s soul lands in one of three places; Heaven, Hell or Purgatory. This is reliant on the work and faith that one carries while alive. When a deceased passes on, the Purgatory becomes an intermediate place where a soul transports itself to when physically dead. It is also known as an avenue for those who are unable to enter Heaven due to past sins committed, which they may make satisfaction for to seek purification.

A Roman Catholic funeral service generally takes place in the deceased’s home, funeral parlour, church or void decks. A typical order of traditions include: The vigil (“wake”) where family and friends pray for the deceased, Eulogies and hymns read and sung throughout the funeral, Funeral mass at the church, Rites of Committal at the resting place of the deceased

Keeping Up With Traditions

Our Catholic funeral package consists of all the essential items that would be required to hold a Roman Catholic funeral service. Some of the ceremonial items and service includes:

  • Casket
  • Condolence Book
  • Tentage
  • Encoffining and Embalming

We are also involved in managing the necessary proceedings such as the transfer of the body into our care, booking of cremation and/or burial slots and also post-funeral services.

We take great importance in ensuring that the religious customs and rites of each family’s needs are taken well care of. This is according to the belief that it can help the deceased transit smoothly into their next life.
