Body's cremated ashes
Question from anonymous on 02-11-2013:
Does the church have any regulations about what to do with cremated ashes after a Catholic funeral? My spouse and I are looking at options other than a cemetery for economic reasons. With the fairly lenient laws in our state, it is doable but we wish to have them properly buried rather than scattered or kept in a box in the house.
Answer by Judie Brown on 02-14-2013:
According to the Catholic Church, cremated ashes must be buried in consecrated ground or a mausoleum.
