As of November, 2017, we are blessed to announce the opening of Divine Mercy Funeral Home, situated thoughtfully on the Catholic Cemetery grounds. The 14,000 square foot funeral home houses two visitation rooms, each with a personal family room; a crematorium and embalming facility and the offices of Catholic Cemetery. Leadership of Catholic Cemetery believes that the establishment of a Catholic funeral home enables them to serve those grieving with a pastoral approach, always maintaining the dignity of each person. “Divine Mercy Funeral Home will complete Catholic Cemetery’s mission in burying the dead and better allow us guide and comfort, in Catholic tradition, those who have lost someone they love,” says Casey Miller, Catholic Cemetery executive director. “This funeral home is a natural extension of the pastoral care that Catholic Cemetery has offered since 1873.”
Since 1873, we’ve been helping families celebrate their loved-one’s life. Our professional staff will guide you through your service options that meet both your needs and budget. We will help you with the big decisions and handle the small details for you. We proudly serves all Christian faiths, races and income levels. Our expertise and resources are unmatched.

Funeral Home Hours
D. Dickey – Fort Wayne
“Planning a funeral is never easy but you were so kind and sympathetic when we met that I felt very comforted. I thank you for your courtesy, as well as your professionalism.
We returned to the cemetery later on the day of the funeral to visit the grave. I spend a lot of time puttering in my yard and like to see it neat and looking nice. When I saw Mom’s grave, I was so pleased. I could not have done a better job. It looked beautiful and it was obvious it had been tended with loving care.”
M. Houser – Fort Wayne
“As my sisters and I approached the grave site near the Altar, we were overcome with joy and gratitude because the headstones were all straight, and the plots were clean. Oh my goodness, we so appreciate how you have maintained the cemetery. Thank you.”
