A Remembrance of Loved Ones Who Died in 2021
This year’s Mass of Remembrance has been canceled at both Resurrection and Gethsemane cemeteries due to ongoing Covid concerns. We still remember and honor the people who have passed away this year by recalling their names in a video tribute, which can be viewed by clicking below. We hope to resume the Mass once again next year.
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.
