Notice from the Diocese:

Cremation and Proper Handling of Cremated Remain

Your Choices Don’t Stop With Cremation

Sadly, some of us have experienced the death of a loved one during this COVID-19 pandemic.  Many have chosen to have their loved one’s remains cremated, whether by choice or necessity.  Keep in mind, the Church’s teaching recommends cremated remains be given the same respect and reverence as the full body, as cremated remains are the body of the deceased in a changed form and should be given the same respect.  Cremated remains should be buried or inurned on sacred grounds.  With the pandemic affecting so many, you may not have been able to bury your loved one’s remains.  It’s never too late to bury cremated remains.  The staff at South Jersey Catholic Cemeteries is here to help and guide you.

When choosing cremation, there are many choices available including:

Ground Burial U Granite or Glass Niches U Crypts U Addition to Family Lot or Crypt U Cremation Garden

Visit SouthJerseyCatholicCemeteries.org to learn more or call us at 855-MyPrePlan (855-697-7375) and a member of our staff will gladly assist you.

“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and take you to myself,

so that where I am you also may be.” John 14:3


 

Let us join together in praying through the intercession of Our Lady of Divine Providence, for those who are suffering as a result of this natural disaster.  Additional information on the US Catholic community’s response to this emergency and how US Catholics can help may be found at www.catholiccharitiesusa.org and www.usccb.org.
