Hi, guys —
I am not of the Catholic faith and now find myself responsible for a burial of someone who was Catholic. The person in question is originally from Italy and was married there. She lived in North America for the past 60 years — for 50 years together with a man without marriage.
I am not sure if the person was divorced from her previous marriage or not.
- Is it possible to bury this person in a Catholic cemetery?
- What are the Catholic guidelines and doctrines related to this situation?
Your help is greatly appreciated.
