Hi, guys —

  • Is it necessary to go to Sunday Church School in order to "bury" your parents in a Catholic way?

My mother is trying to get me to go so I can learn whatever the procedure or process is to bury Catholic relatives.

Though my parents are Catholic, I do not share any of their beliefs.


  { Is it necessary to go to Sunday Church School to learn how to bury your parents the Catholic way? }

Eric replied:

Henry —

It is not required. The ability to bury someone pretty much depends on the person being buried, not the person burying. Even if I am wrong (which is possible), it certainly doesn't depend on one's schooling.


Henry replied:

Thank you, Eric —

The reason why I asked was because my mother, who is now angered, thinks I have to attend Sunday Church School and learn whatever it is in order to bury her properly at a Catholic cemetery.


Mary Ann replied:

Dear Henry —

For her to receive a Catholic burial service she must be a Catholic, but you can call the cemetery to see who can be buried there.
