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.
Stolen Vases at Resurrection Cemetery
It has been reported that a number of bronze vases at Resurrection Cemetery have been stolen. The Mendota Heights Police have been alerted and ask property owners to contact them directly at 651-452-1366 to file a police report. A copy of this police report will need to be sent to the Resurrection Cemetery Office to facilitate vase replacement. Please contact the Resurrection Cemetery Office at 651-454-5072 if you have any questions.
Bringing Them Home 2021
This year we will once again be offering a program entitled “Bringing Them Home” for anyone who had cremated remains at home and wants to have them interred in a communal crypt in the Chapel Mausoleum at Resurrection Cemetery.
Let us guide you
To honor and memorialize a loved one is to start a new journey. For those grieving, it’s how healing begins. The many ways in which remembrance and perpetual care may be facilitated can be overwhelming, and that’s where we come in. Whether you’re in need of immediate services, or proactively planning ahead, we are here to guide you with the care, expertise, and Christian compassion for which we are so well known.

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.
