Catholic Burial - Catholic Tradition
* Some pages and elements of The Catholic Cemeteries Association web site require registration.
The Catholic Church has a long and rich tradition of burial rites dating back to its earliest days, when the burial of deceased Christians took place in the catacombs of Rome. It was in those same catacombs that the early Christians gathered for the breaking of the Eucharist. Even in its infancy, the Church marked the burial of the faithful with special rituals and held that burial ground to be sacred traditions that the Church has preserved until the present time.
It is still the mark of a devout and faithful Catholic to provide that his or her remains are buried in conformity with the faith and the norms of the Church, in a cemetery where the whole church offers prayers for eternal rest and peace.
