Who we are
Where remembrance begins
The Catholic Cemeteries provides a wide range of faith-based burial options in the Twin Cities, offering personalized, end-of-life care, memorialization and expert experience in a time of profound grief and change. We are a separate corporation that manages five cemeteries that serve Catholic families and provides consultation support to parish-owned cemeteries. The Catholic Cemeteries receives no financial support from the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis or any other organization. Our funding is derived from the sale of graves, crypts, memorials, and service fees. Dedicated to caring for our cemeteries in perpetuity, the Permanent Care Fund of The Catholic Cemeteries is professionally managed. The Permanent Care Fund is funded by the sale of burial rights; 20% of each ground burial sale and 10% of each crypt or niche sale is invested in the fund.
