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.
Cremated remains receive the same committal service as full casket. Options for inurnment include niches, indoor or outdoor of the mausoleum. Also, in-ground outdoors with a variety of selected options. Visit our page on cremation for more information.
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.
Burial Vaults and Cremation Urn-Vaults
All in-ground burials require an outer container for the casket or cremated remains. A variety of choices are available at cemetery offices.
A portion of all payments received for goods and services is set aside for perpetual care of our cemeteries.
All caskets include an upholstered interior, pillow, mattress, and adjustable bed. Handles and a clear lacquer finish are also standard features. A cross is optional. Each Trappist Casket meets or exceeds industry standards for strength and size, and all models fit within a standard size burial vault.
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.
Every three months, Mass is said at one of our two mausoleum chapels on a rotation basis. Families of those deceased since the last Mass receive an invitation to attend. An open invitation is extended through an announcement in The Leaven.
