Burial of Loved Ones


Father Daniel Kearney, pastor of Ascension parish in Manhattan, lead family and friends in prayer before the cremated remains of 18 people with parish ties were interred in the St. Joseph of Arimathea section of Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Hawthorne Nov. 21. The section, opened at the initiative of Cardinal Dolan, responds to a need for low-cost burial options for those who had been cremated but never buried or placed in a niche at a cemetery.
