What do I do when someone dies?

Although we are disturbed by death Catholics do not believe it is the end. Through our baptism we hope to follow Christ into the new life of heaven. When someone dies a priest should be notified as soon as possible so that the he may meet with the family of the deceased and begin making arrangements for the funeral.
