The custom of bai jin or “White Gold” (giving money in a white envelope) is actually a Chinese funeral custom and is widely practiced. The gift is not a requirement, particularly for people who are not of that culture. We consulted a number of sources to confirm that Catholics also participate in this tradition and we didn’t find anything to forbid it. If you would like to contribute to the family with bai jin, we believe it will be greatly appreciated.
