The Committal or Graveside Service for a loved one typically follows final prayers at a funeral home or after a Catholic Mass at church. If a Catholic Mass is not held, proof of Catholic must be provided prior to making arrangements. Acceptable documents for proof would include; Certificate of Baptism, Certificate of Communion or Confirmation, Certificate of Marriage in a Catholic Church, or a letter from your Parish Priest stating you/were a parishioner.
Cremation can play a vital role in the healing and closure for families. Catholic's in the past did not recognize cremation as a burial option. However, as the years past, cremation has now become widely accepted by many religions. This does not take away the feeling of losing a loved one, but a process of preparing your loved one for his or her final resting place, while respecting their wishes.
