My dh's cousin passed away last week. My dh is Catholic and so am I. This cousin was my dh's mom's sister's son. I thought my MIL was Catholic, and assumed her sister was too. The funeral is at a Methodist church, so I guess the cousin and his parents are Methodist. (confusing? sorry) I wanted to get a Mass Card for the family, at our church (which is Catholic). My dh's aunt (who is a devout Catholic)just told me that I MUST NOT do that, because the cousin was Methodist. Okay I guess I can understand that, but there IS Catholic somewhere down the family lines. And besides that, of course they don't have to attend the mass I was just being considerate and wanted to have a mass said in his name.
So, should I or shouldn't I? I certainly do not want to offend the grieving family! I don't know them very well, but they are my dh's relatives.
What else can I do? Do Methodists have Memorial Masses?
