“Inurnment” is the placement of cremated remains in buildings or other structures. The term used for structures that contain cremated remains is “Columbarium”. They may be constructed of bronze, granite, marble or glass and can hold from one to several urns in a single space. The space containing the urn in a columbarium is called a “Niche”.
Catholics may now choose to be cremated. The revised Code of Canon Law (1983) states:
The Church earnestly recommends that the pious custom of burial be retained; but it does not forbid cremation, unless it is chosen for reasons, which are contrary to Christian teaching.
