On November 2, The Most Reverend Kevin C. Rhoades, Bishop of Fort Wayne-South Bend, along with Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry and the Board of the Fort Wayne Catholic Cemetery, officially opened Divine Mercy Funeral Home with a ribbon cutting and blessing. The funeral home is located on the grounds of the Catholic Cemetery, 3500 Lake Avenue. The 14,000 square foot facility houses two visitation rooms, each with a personal family room; a crematorium and embalming facility, and the offices of Catholic Cemetery.
“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.”
Divine Mercy’s professional staff will guide you through your service options that meet both your needs and budget. The staff will help you with the big decisions and handle the small details. Divine Mercy proudly serves all Christian faiths, races and income levels with a full spectrum of tributes from traditional funerals to cremation memorial services and green burial options.
