Death & Dying as a Member
of the Catholic Church

The body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, and it should be treated with reverence and respect in preparation with the afterlife, during which we are all reunited with Jesus Christ, our savior.  Death is the end of our earthly pilgrimage, of the time of grace and mercy which God offers us so as to work out his earthly life in keeping with the divine plan and to decide our ultimate destiny. When the single course of our earthly life is completed, we shall not return to other earthly lives. According to The Code of Canon Law, the Church earnestly recommends that the pious custom of burial be retained; but it does not forbid cremation, unless this is chosen for reasons which are contrary to Christian teaching. At St. Madeleine, we host funerals for corporal burials and burials of cremains. Our parishioners can be buried in the Memorial Garden.
