|Mission||Over the centuries, a tradition has grown that it is the right, privilege and duty of every Catholic to seek burial in a Catholic cemetery. However, living in the midst of changing circumstances has resulted in changing perceptions in the minds of some regarding the relevance of the Catholic cemetery in the scheme of their lives. While the Church has moved away from a legislative stance and no longer mandates that all Catholics be buried in Catholic cemeteries, the reasons for maintaining and using Catholic cemeteries are as powerful and compelling as ever. The usual and proper place for the burial of Catholics is still the Catholic cemetery in view of the values contained in the Church's burial tradition....|

This is a brief overview of the options available at the Catholic Cemeteries. Our staff is always available to assist you. If you’d like to learn more about your choices, please call the cemetery office for more information.
Only you can decide what is best for your family.
Traditional Burial Options are available at all our Catholic Cemeteries in either monument lots or shrine graves. Monument lots, varying in grave numbers are sold as a unit in certain sections of the cemetery and allow one upright monument to be installed on the lot. Shrine sections generally have a central shrine or feature and each grave is memorialized by a lawn-level bronze marker.
Lawn Crypts provide burial space for two in a pre-installed, double depth concrete chamber. Lawn crypts allow a family to provide for the majority of their cemetery needs at an affordable package price: burial space, outer container and lawn-level bronze memorial with vase. Lawn Crypts are available at Queen of All Saints Cemetery and Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
Community Mausoleums offer a number of options to meet the preferences and budgets of those families that prefer above ground entombment. The price of a mausoleum crypt can compare favorably with the total cost of ground burial. Cemetery of the Holy Rood, Holy Sepulchre Cemetery and Queen of All Saints Cemetery have community mausoleums.
Family Heritage Lots can accommodate either a private family mausoleum or in-ground burial spaces. Custom landscaping and distinctive memorialization is available on these estate lots.
Cremation Urn Columbariums are specially designed for families choosing cremation. Our cemeteries offer a variety of cremation niche space for inurnment at our community mausoleums.
