As with many products and services, prices for funerals have steadily
increased over the years. Many families now want to avoid the cost of
a traditional funeral with a casket and burial. They have other
options at Cathedral
of Christ the Light in Oakland, CA.
Followers of the Catholic faith are allowed to have their deceased
relatives cremated, but they are asked to keep the ashes in one
secure place instead of scattering them. Those cremains can be
interred at a mausoleum if the family prefers. At the mausoleum
connected with Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland, CA,
relatives and friends may visit on occasion and reflect on the love
they still have for this individual.
Cremation is usually chosen by families who want to hold a memorial
service instead of a full funeral with a Mass and showing of the
body. They can have this farewell ceremony at the cathedral or in a
different location. Depending on the setting, the urn could be on
display, perhaps with flowers and a photograph of the person.
Families that truly prefer a funeral Mass with a wake can keep their
costs lower by selecting a casket without precious materials and
elaborate detailing. Bronze and gold components add to the price, as
does expensive wood like mahogany and ornate embellishments. The
least expensive wood casket is made of pine, but these typically are
not used for showing a body during visitation.
Anyone needing these services may visit the Cathedral of Christ the Light Mausoleum website at https://www.cfcsoakland.org/location/cathedral-of-christ-the-light-mausoleum to find contact information.
