A Warm Welcome From The Catholic Cemeteries

Our Catholic cemeteries are available to all Catholics and their family members, whether or not those family members are also Catholic.

For many people, a certain Catholic cemetery or mausoleum is part of their family's history. Other people are starting new traditions with us.

Choosing a Catholic cemetery can connect you with your faith and your heritage.

We want you to know we are a not-for-profit organization, and we promise a no-pressure approach. We will provide information to help you make the best decision for you and your family. Please give us a call and let us know how we can help.
