Church reportedly tells 84-year-old she can’t be buried next to husband

1 min

An 84-year-old woman in Minnesota was reportedly told by her church last weekend that she is no longer allowed to be buried next to her husband due to church policy that states “members who have not gathered together with us in worship to receive the Lord’s Supper at least four times in one calendar year will have excluded themselves from fellowship with us.”

Doreen Pawelk has been a member of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in New Germany for more than 50 years. Her husband died last summer and she already purchased a plot at the church’s cemetery.

The church said it is a misunderstanding, and that the wrong type of letter was mistakenly sent. Full Report
