Catholic Cemeteries

The passing of a loved one is an extremely difficult time for anybody. The mission of our five Archdiocesan Catholic Cemeteries is to provide much-needed comfort and to minister to individuals and families during their time of grief. Because the soul is eternal and Jesus’ love is everlasting, your loved one will be treated and exalted with the respect of the living, even after their passing.

Burial in a Catholic Cemetery reflects the beginning of a new life closer to God. It’s an expression of our faith and a statement of our continued hope in our own resurrection. These consecrated grounds hold the earthly remains of our family members and friends who have shared their love, fellowship and faith with us. Catholic cemeteries are a lasting and physical testimony that Christian life is unbroken by death. Plan today to prepare for a beautiful eternity.
