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 Catholic Cemeteries is having a cemetery photography contest! When you visit our grounds, please take photos of flowers, wildlife, family picnics, markers, monuments – whatever catches your eye. The contest runs until 4pm on August 31, 2021. The first prize winner will receive $150. Submit today!

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.
