To fulfill our mission of burying the dead with dignity and comforting the living with compassion, Catholic Cemeteries is striving to do everything possible to help ensure that we meet the needs of our families during these challenging times. We appreciate your understanding, patience and observance of the guidelines Catholic Cemeteries has in place to address concerns related to COVID-19. The following guidelines have been implemented to protect the families we serve and our staff.
Pre-need Arrangements – Catholic Cemeteries is offering a new service through which a Family Service Advisor can connect with you for a remote presentation via your cell phone, computer or tablet. We will send you a link that allows us to screen-share with you to review burial options and plans. You can see the options on your screen, and we can discuss them during this remote mobile presentation. It’s easy and convenient; no special equipment required – only your phone, computer or tablet.
Call 913-371-4040 to learn more.
At-need (Immediate Need) Arrangements – During the COVID-19 emergency, Catholic Cemeteries is not maintaining regular office hours at any of our locations. In the event of the loss of a loved one or if death is imminent, please call 913-371-4040 to arrange an appointment with a Family Service Advisor. The Advisor will meet with up to two asymptomatic family representatives to assist with burial arrangements.
