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

WHY CHOOSE DIVINE MERCY
Divine Mercy Funeral Home in Fort Wayne, Indiana, is owned and operated by the Fort Wayne-South Bend Diocese.

Just as Jesus’ body was carefully and reverently prepared for its final placement in the tomb, our Catholic funeral home and cemetery upholds this sacred act of mercy.
WHY CHOOSE A CATHOLIC FUNERAL
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.
