Catholic Cemeteries

Catholic cemeteries are places of prayer, hope and memory. Cemeteries are places where family members may visit and remember their loved ones as they pray for them in the certain hope of our resurrection.

Why Choose a Catholic Cemetery

Each person, created in the image and likeness of God, sets out on a faith journey. Our Church and in particular the local parish is always present along the way to minister to the traveler’s needs and to celebrate significant milestones in his or her life.

Just as conception and growth are part of our pilgrimage, so is death. On life’s journey the Church is present to support and nurture the members of the faith community; therefore, it is only fitting that the Church is present at the time of death and grief.

Catholic cemeteries are an extension of the parish where those who have worshiped and prayed together in life now await the resurrection of the body in death.
