This reminds me many years ago when my parish had a “lay administrator.” A young lady of the parish committed suicide. Very sad. For the next 6+ weeks there was a running story in the bulletin about her upcoming “service” where her ashes would be spread at the beach. Week after week.
So I finally emailed the lay administrator and told him that it’s not a good idea to keep mentioning this in the bulletin because the Church does not allow the spreading of cremains. He was personally harsh in his reply.
I replied that he was setting up a problem for our next pastor. That others would demand ongoing bulletin write-ups of their decedents’ spreading ceremonies, that the priest would have to decline if they wanted to do the right thing and that it could well lead to problems.
It did, a number of times. When we finally got a new bishop and a pastor he was sacked, thanks be to God.
