CELEDONIA, Wis. (RCE Noticias) – La Asociación de Cementerios Católicos de Racine (Cementerios Católicos de Racine) ha creado un área para entierros verdes, llamada St. Francis Meadow, en Holy Cross Cemetery, 5600 Holy Cross Road.

Una ceremonia de dedicación, dirigida por el reverendo Anthony Primal Thomas, está prevista para las 11:30 a.m. del miércoles 2 de septiembre.

“Green Burial es una alternativa cada vez más atractiva para personas de todas las religiones, especialmente aquellas que sienten una responsabilidad especial de evitar daños innecesarios al medio ambiente”, dijo Pat McLeod, presidente de la junta de la Asociación de Cementerios Católicos, en un comunicado de prensa. “Creemos que es el momento adecuado para ofrecer Entierro Verde a nuestra comunidad, y creemos que somos el primer cementerio en el condado de Racine en hacerlo.”

St. Francis Meadow está ubicado en la parte suroeste del cementerio de Holy Cross en Caledonia. Se aplicarán estos principios fundamentales de Green Burials:

  • No se permiten bóvedas funerarias de hormigón o metal.
  • No embalsamar con formaldehído u otros productos químicos peligrosos.
  • Solo se puede usar un ataúd biodegradable, sudario u otros recipientes.

En esa sección del cementerio se presentará más paisajismo natural, utilizando pastos de pradera y flores silvestres. Para obtener más información sobre las oportunidades de Entierro Verde, o los cementerios católicos de Racine, llame al 262-639-1071.
