Where remembrance begins

Gather in sacred dignity

The call to comfort those who mourn is at the heart of our mission at The Catholic Cemeteries—but we are so much more than that. We are an organization built around the fundamental truth that death is not just an end but a beginning.

The mission of The Catholic Cemeteries is to bury the dead, fulfilling one of the Corporal Works of Mercy.  During this month of All Souls, we invite you to consider a donation to the Archbishop Harry J. Flynn Compassionate Assistance Fund.  We honor Archbishop Flynn’s pastoral concern for human life with this opportunity to provide financial assistance where it is needed for burial services.

Open Door Pantry

The Catholic Cemeteries in Mendota Heights is proud to team with Open Door Pantry in fundraising for those affected by food insecurity in Dakota County. A Christmas ornament will be added to the Christmas tree at TCC’s corporate office at Resurrection Cemetery for each $20 donation.

Mass of Remembrance

Please note that December’s Mass of Remembrance has been cancelled at both Resurrection and Gethsemane cemeteries due to ongoing Covid and flu concerns. We hope to resume the Mass again next year.

Bringing Them Home

This year The Catholic Cemeteries offered a one-time opportunity for anyone in the Twin Cities who had cremated remains at home to permanently place them in a communal crypt at either Resurrection or Gethsemane Cemetery. A committal service was held at each cemetery on Tuesday, November 1st. The committal service at Resurrection Cemetery was led by Archbishop Hebda in the Chapel Mausoleum and was recorded.

What is Catholic Burial?

A Catholic burial is series of rites used by all Catholic parishes to commemorate the life and death of a member of the community. They include the Vigil (the wake), the Funeral Mass and the Rite of Committal (the burial). These celebrate the life of the deceased and offer comfort to their loved ones and there are variations of these rites depending on circumstances. Your parish staff can help you plan a funeral just as The Catholic Cemeteries is here to help guide you through the burial process.
