WELCOME

The Catholic Cemetery is proud to announce the opening of Divine Mercy Funeral Home, a sacred place to honor your loved ones.

Dear Friends in Christ,

I am very happy to recommend and support the Divine Mercy Funeral Home which, together with our Catholic Cemetery, is a Catholic ministry and institution here in the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend. It was during the Jubilee Year of Mercy that I approved the establishment of this Catholic funeral home in Fort Wayne and decided to give it the name “Divine Mercy.” Central to the Church’s funeral rites is the commendation of the dead to God’s merciful love and prayers for the forgiveness of their sins…

  • …We commend our deceased brothers and sisters to the Divine Mercy. The Divine Mercy Funeral Home operates in accord with Catholic teaching and practice. The Church confidently proclaims that God has created each person for eternal life and that Jesus, the Son of God, by His death and resurrection, has conquered sin and death. The hope of the resurrection inspires the activity and services of the Divine Mercy Funeral Home where those who mourn are consoled in an atmosphere of faith and prayer. The Divine Mercy Funeral Home observes the norms of the Catholic Church requiring respect and honor for the bodies of the dead. Since in Baptism the body was marked with the seal of the Trinity and became the temple of the Holy Spirit, the preparation and disposition of the body is marked with dignity and reverence. The Divine Mercy Funeral Horne is committed to the compassionate care of those who have suffered the loss of a loved one. Its ministry of consolation is aimed at comforting those who mourn, assisting them with planning the funeral rites as well as providing them with the comfort of prayer. The Divine Mercy Funeral Home promotes and facilitates the celebration of the Churches funeral rites, recognizing that the Mass, the memorial of Christ’s death and resurrection, is the principal celebration of the Catholic funeral. I pray that God will bless the ministry of the Divine Mercy Funeral Home and that He will bestow His grace and comfort upon all who are served there. May the faithful departed who are buried from this home, through the mercy of God, rest in peace!

    Sincerely yours in Christ,

    Most Reverend Kevin C. Rhoades

This includes the traditional Catholic funeral rites, which uphold our faith in the bodily resurrection and offers unique opportunities for remembrance, comfort and expressions of devotion.

  • As Catholics, we are blessed with the promise of life everlasting. To be with our Lord in Heaven, we are baptized, follow His word, and keep Him in our hearts throughout our journey on earth. At death, we trust our bodies to a sacred Catholic funeral, to be prepared for the Resurrection. Because we know God created us in His own image and likeness, we honor our bodies with respect and dignity, in life and in death.

    With the Catholic funeral Mass, our Church and family pray for the souls of the deceased, in hopes that God will prepare a place for them in His fullness and light. We pray also to provide condolence and comfort to those left behind.

    For more than 100 years, it has been the sacred duty of Catholic Cemeteries and Funeral Homes to care for families in their time of need. When a death occurs, or you are ready to preplan a Catholic funeral, we’ll be here to comfort and serve you.
