Special Ways To Remember
Families and friends of the deceased often wish to express their love and remembrance in some material fashion. There are many ways to do so.
Memorialization of the grave, especially with the utilization of appropriate religious symbolism, is a visible sign to all who visit of your love and your faith in the promise of Eternal Life. The placement of the memorial (monument or marker) is the right of the owner of the grave space; anyone other than the owner of record must receive written permission from the owner in order to place the memorial. Your Family Service Counselor can assist you in the purchase of a memorial. Click here for Memorialzation options.
Placement of a bench, statue, plaque or tree in one of our Catholic Cemeteries not only honors the memory of your loved one but contributes to the beauty and serenity of the cemetery for all to enjoy. For further information about these options, please call The Catholic Cemeteries office at 651-228-9991.
Special holiday grave decorations are available for purchase, including a floral bouquet for Memorial Day, an evergreen wreath at the holidays, or a poinsettia plant (Gethsemane Cemetery only). Click here for more information.
A gift to one of The Catholic Cemeteries Donor Funds in memory of your loved one assists The Catholic Cemeteries in carrying out its mission of ministering to those who grieve. Click here for information on these options.
