OCF 136: Funeral Mass Without Rite of Reception

There is a procedure if the body has already been received at the church, say, for a vigil:

136. If the rite of reception has already taken place, the funeral Mass begins in the usual way and the funeral liturgy outside Mass begins with the entrance song, followed by the greeting and an invitation to prayer.

Note that if this is not a Mass, there is no penitential rite.
