La Pieta In this section:



Our Catholic cemeteries are an integral element of our profession of faith that death is nothing other than a transition to the fullness of life.


Christian burial is as old as the Church itself. From its earliest days, the Church has taught that the bodies of the faithful are sacred…formed to the image and likeness of God, temples of the Holy Spirit, and destined for glorification and eternal life. This is mirrored in the dignity and beauty of a Catholic cemetery.


Because non-Catholics are part of Catholic families, the Church also favors the burial of non-Catholic members of Catholic families in our Cemeteries.

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more...”
Rev. 21
