From a reader:
My Grandfather died yesterday, may he rest in peace, and he was a Presbyterian. My immediate family including my Grandfather’s eldest child (my Mother) are Roman Catholics (my Mother is a convert).
As a Catholic, I am assuming that I may attend the Protestant funeral but is it permissible for me to be a pallbearer? Or would that be participating in a Protestant religious service?
Additionally, how am I to act if I am permitted to attend a Protestant Funeral?
I feel very uneasy being around anything non-Catholic.
I am sure the readers here will, as I just have, stopped to say a prayer for your grandfather.
Yes, you can go to the funeral and, yes, you can be a pall bearer for your grandfather. That does not constitute participation in a non-Catholic religious rite.
Be at ease about this.
