Pre-planning honors your wishes.
Meet the StaffOur counselors meet with families 365 days of the year to arrange at-need and pre-need purchases and services. A member of our staff is always present at the burial or entombment in our cemeteries.
Catholic CemeteriesDeath as seen through the eyes of a Christian is not the end, it is simply a natural passageway to a changed life with God. Burial in a Catholic cemetery is a statement of continued belief in that everlasting life, even in death.
Mass and Holiday ScheduleYou are invited to join us for regular memorial Masses and special liturgical celebrations, such as commemorative Masses for persons who have died.
Programs and ServicesAmong the many benefits offered by Catholic Cemeteries, we can help you pre-arrange your end-of-life plans to suit your preferences and to save your family the stress of making these decisions at a later date.
Memorialization and FlowersMemorialize your loved one by taking advantage of our Mausoleum Floral Program. We will assist you in ordering flowers to honor your loved one who has passed. You can order your memorial here.
