Frequently Asked Questions
With the growth of cremation and in light of the Catholic Church’s teaching regarding the proper disposition of cremated remains, it is our mission, as a ministry of the Archdiocese of Denver, to offer a dignified and sacred resting place for all.
The Catholic Church teaches that the cremated remains of the body be buried or entombed and receive the “Rite of Committal.” Scattering the remains, keeping them at home or dividing them among family members is not the reverent disposition that the Church requires. “The bodies of the dead must be treated with respect and charity, in faith and hope of the Resurrection. The burial of the dead is a corporal work of mercy, it honors the children of God, who are temples of the Holy Spirit.”
Complimentary placement does not include memorialization.
Yes, remains can be disinterred from the Crypt of All Souls at no cost.
