Catholic Cemeteries

Planning for end of life on earth is an expression of acceptance, trust and faith in the Resurrection.

The Church offers us the beauty, hope and healing of the funeral Rites. In many regions, Catholic-owned funeral homes and cemeteries offer services, sacred space for burial, prayer and worship.

Why planning now for the future is so important

Three areas of planning

Reduces burden on a spouse or children in the future

Ensures important decisions won't need to be made during a time of sorrow

Outlines your wishes and offers an opportunity to select a burial location according to your faith interests

Funeral Home Service

A licensed funeral home coordinates services such as preparation of the deceased’s remains, church services, hospitality, and liaises with the cemetery on the burial. 

Sacred Burial Space

Catholic cemeteries offer sacred burial space and the related services. You’ll need to consider traditional burial or cremation burial.

Funeral Liturgy Service

In order to plan the funeral liturgy for your loved one, you will need to connect with a priest. The funeral is a ritual with meaning, a ritual that heals.
