Catholic Burial Rites
Share |
  The Illinois Funeral Directors Association is partnering with the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois to offer five free educational sessions on Catholic Burial Rites. These sessions will be held in various locations throughout the diocese. Bishop Thomas John Paprocki and his staff will be conducting these meetings to provide education on Catholic Burial Rites, the rules of Catholic cemeteries, and changes due to cremation. These meetings are mandatory for priests and recommended for acting cemetery managers and funeral directors in the Springfield Diocese. Lunch will be provided. Illinois Funeral Directors and Embalmers that register for a session through IFDA will receive 2 Funeral Directing continuing education hours.
