Reflections on Cremation

The Catholic Church requires the cremated remains to be buried or entombed in a family grave, urn garden or columbarium. Scattering or keeping cremated remains in the home are not reverent forms of disposition that the Church approves.

The Church requires that the cremated remains be housed in one urn. Therefore, designer keepsake urn, such as jewelry, are not acceptable in Catholic funeral practices. We offer a wide variety of memorial urns that are suitable for burial or entombment. Most urns can be engraved.
