The Catholic church recognizes the many emotions that family members experience at the death of a loved one. The time of death can be a graced moment when faith and family bonds are strengthened. The prayers and sacraments of the church provide comfort and hope for the bereaved.
The church encourages family members to communicate openly about funeral and cemetery arrangements well in advance of the need to implement them. This logically entails considering the purchase of a Right of Interment Certificate (“Deed”) for a grave, crypt or niche space before it is needed.
Arranging for a grave, tomb or niche for cremated remains through pre-need planning assures that family members can spend the time surrounding a death in support of one another and thoughtful planning of liturgical rites to celebrate the deceased’s passage to eternal life.
It will also bring peace of mind to the entire family and save money, because burial costs increase over time. Please take this opportunity to contact a Calvary & Allied Cemeteries office for free, no-obligation information about burial alternatives and costs. Some options may not be available in an immediate-need situation.
