Frequently Asked Questions
Who can be buried in a Catholic Cemetery?
Catholic cemeteries are generally for the burial of Catholics because the Catholic burial place implies a sharing of common belief and the same community of faith. Therefore, the purchaser of the lot must be Catholic.
The diocesan cemeteries welcome non-Catholic family members as well. The Church believes that those who were together in life should not be separated in death.
Does the Church allow cremation?
Cremation is acceptable, although the Church prefers burial of the body. When cremation is chosen, burial of the cremated remains in a suitable container is required, as they are human remains which should have reverent disposition. Burial may be made in an existing family plot, or in graves and niches specially designed for cremated remains.
Do the Catholic Cemeteries sell monuments or markers?
No, the Catholic cemeteries of the Diocese of Trenton do not sell memorials. We can guide you through the process of memorializing every life with dignity with a recommended vendor.
