Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
Disposition of the body of deceased Catholics by means of cremation is a fairly recent development. In 1963, instruction issued by the Holy Office (Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith) stated the preference of burying the bodies of the faithful departed, but allowance was made for cremation in cases of necessity as long as it was not chosen as a sign of denial of Christian teaching, especially that of the resurrection of the dead and the immortality of the soul.
Please contact the parish office if a cremation of your loved one is the planned disposition of the body. The Liturgy will be prepared and facilitated by the parish office staff.
