Why choose a Catholic Cemetery to bury cremated human remains?
“The cremated remains of a body should be treated with the same respect given to the human body from which they come” (Order of Christian Funerals, paragraph 417)
Catholic Cemeteries are an expression of Faith and serve as an extension of our Catholic Church community. Catholic Cemeteries are sacred ground and offer a continuing journey of the sacraments. From birth we are baptized into the Church and with death we await eternal life through resurrection. By choosing Catholic Cemeteries, you continue your life’s journey of a final resting place conducive of serenity and prayer awaiting the promise of everlasting life.
- The Guidance for Catholics brochure by Archbishop Gregory Aymond is available in our offices. The brochure explains guidelines for Cremation and Eulogies.
Many Catholics are choosing cremation and we can provide a cremation niche for your needs where memorializing can serve as an everlasting tribute and peaceful focal point for families to visit. We offer affordable niches in our St. Louis and St. Roch Cemeteries, and St. Charles Cemetery in Luling. For more information please contact Paul Longa at 504-488-5200 or 504-227-3241 or email@example.com.
- Don’t let your loved ones grieve over not being able to properly memorialize you.
- For generations to come, there will be no record or headstone to search for ancestors if a deceased’s cremated remains are not interred.
