Yes. It is recognized that those who die from the act of suicide deserve understanding and compassion. The deceased may have been suffering from a serious psychological instability, or overwhelming fear and confusion. Therefore, the Church offers funeral and burial rites for those who may have died as a result of suicide. The American edition of the Catholic ritual includes prayers for this specific situation. These prayers evoke forgiveness for the departed and consolation to their family.
No, the purchaser or assigned burial right owner has an exclusive and permanent burial right conveyed by Catholic Cemeteries. This right passes to the spouse first or direct blood heirs immediately after the death of the recorded burial right owner if there’s no spouse. This applies to all graves, crypts, niches and family estates in the cemetery. Written permission of the heirs-at-law may be required for burial. It is advisable to secure any such written permission prior to advanced planning or immediate needs. For more information regarding Burial Rights, please contact a Family Service Advisor at any of our CFCS cemetery locations.
CFCS offers a wide variety of memorial options to meet the needs of our families. Our experienced family service staff will walk you through the entire design and ordering process, dedicated to helping you tell a lasting story to remember your loved one for generations to come.
