Programs and Services

Among 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.

Interment / Entombment Options

  • Cremation Indoor And Outdoor
    • The same committal service as full casket arrangements. Options for inurnment include niches (interior or exterior of the mausoleum) and in columbaria. Also, in-ground outdoors with a variety of options. For more information, visit our page on Cremation.
  • Lawn Crypts – Single And Double
    • Preset vaults in designated sections. Singles are side-by-side. Doubles have upper and lower compartments, so two people can share the same vault. The committal service is the same as for regular ground burial.
  • Perpetual Care
    • A portion of all payments received for goods and services is set aside for perpetual care of our cemeteries.

 

Memorials and Markers

  • Upright Monuments and Lawn Markers
    • Upright monuments and flat/lawn markers are regulated by cemetery location. Samples of each are available. Monuments and markers can be ordered through our cemetery offices.
  • Temporary Grave Markers
    • In-ground burials that have no previous marker in place are provided a temporary marker for 30 days. If a permanent marker is bought and paid for through Catholic Cemeteries, the temporary marker will remain in place until the permanent marker is set in ground.
  • Memorial Benches 
    • Families can arrange for gravesite placement of a bench or donate funds for placement of a bench in the cemetery. Location is determined by space available.

 

Burial Services

  • Chapel Services
    • Committal services for all burials can be held in a mausoleum chapel, if the family prefers and if available.
  • Graveside Services
    • Traditional for in-ground burial, the services include tent, chairs, and grass rug draping.
