Father Larry McBride shares Church teaching on cremation

Father Larry McBride, pastor of Holy Name of Jesus Parish in Henderson, Ky., spoke to the Sisters in Saint Joseph Villa on Sept. 23, 2022, about the Catholic Church’s position on cremation.

Several Sisters were unclear what the current Church position is on cremation. Father Larry explained that cremation is allowed as long as the deceased believed in the resurrection, that the cremains are kept together and that they are buried or interred someplace sacred.

Here are some photos from the day.
