Memorial Day 2021

Memorial Day is the day that’s set aside to remember with gratitude and pride all those who served and died for our country and our freedom, as well as our loved ones who have died this past year. With the ongoing pandemic, The Catholic Cemeteries offices will be closed Memorial Day weekend and Mass will not be celebrated outdoors. The grounds will be open daily from dawn to dusk, and prayers you can use for Memorial Day can be found by clicking on the button below We look forward to celebrating this holiday with you in 2022!

The Catholic Cemeteries will not be selling flower bouquets or arrangements this year.

People are expected to bring their own decorations and allowable containers when visiting the cemetery.  Instead of throwing out the green metal flower containers in preparation of mowing, we make them available to guests in the bin across from section 19. They are available on a first come, first served basis. Once they are gone, we do not restock the bin until we again prep for mowing when they are removed from graves.

Due to an aging infrastructure, the water will be shut off in our cemeteries until further notice, so the faucets won’t be available. You will see large barrels of water that you may use for your flowers.  We apologize for any inconvenience!

Bringing Them Home 2020

Back in 2020 The Catholic Cemeteries welcomed burials from those who have been cremated but who had not been interred for a one-day event. 

“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he saves those whose spirit is crushed”

(Psalm 34:19)
