The norm for a Catholic who has died is to have a funeral mass celebrated in the church. The community prays that their soul will be received into the heavenly banquet of heaven.
Likewise, the Church directs that we show respect for the physical remains of a person. While cremation is allowed, the ashes are to be either buried or placed in a columbarium, not scattered or turned into lockets.
Unfortunately, there is a growing phenomenon where the children of Catholics who were a regular part of the worshiping community, do not choose a funeral mass. It is a sad affair when a person has obtained great solace from their faith and been a significant part of a church community, and then is not given a Catholic funeral.
We have Funeral Preparation Guides in the Parish Office for anyone who may wish to ensure a Catholic funeral mass. After completing the guide, present a copy to the Parish Office to keep on file and give a duplicate copy to whoever may be handling your affairs.
