The Catholic Cemetery
Our faith teaches us that even after death, the body retains a special purpose, preparing for the moment of resurrection. For generations it has been the sacred duty of the Catholic Church to care for its members, a responsibility that extends beyond this life.
Sacred Place: As an extension of the Church, Catholic cemeteries are consecrated grounds. It is a shrine to our faith — a reminder of the promise of the Resurrection. When we visit, there is also an intimate link of community between the faithful, living and dead. It is that special place for our fondest memories and anticipation of future reunion.
Caring Personalized Service: Dedicated counselors will assist you when you need it most, offering guidance in the selection of cemetery services. All burial options appropriate for Catholics are available, including traditional in-ground burial, above ground mausoleums and cremations in memorial niches or columbariums. Our purpose is to provide you with peace, care and guidance as you prepare to honor your loved one’s memory.
Reinforcing the Faith: Through sacred art and statues, it provides a place of reflection that reinforces our beliefs and traditions. You can easily find comfort at a Catholic cemetery because the statuary and imagery reflect what you have seen throughout your life. You will find these familiar images in the gardens, mausoleum and chapels of a Catholic cemetery and funeral home. A visit to a Catholic cemetery reinforces the faith that sustains us after the death of someone we love.

“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.”

“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.”
