Burial or Inurnment Options

In keeping with Church teaching for burial of cremated remains in a cemetery, there are two options for the final disposition of cremated remains: in-ground burial and above-ground inurnment.

Ground Burial of Cremated Remains:

Above-Ground Inurnment of Cremated Remains in a Columbarium:

In making the selection of the cremation urn one should keep in mind the location selected – will it be seen or concealed? Does the urn space selected make provision for identification of the individual? Obviously, a glass fronted niche will not do so and therefore the memorialization or the identification will have to be included on the urn itself.
