Preserving Your Faith
Through Togetherness –

As a community of believers in Jesus Christ, even in death, our faith is unbroken. By making advance burial arrangements, you will have the assurance
of knowing that your beliefs will
continue while awaiting the Resurrection.

Why Should You Choose A
Catholic Cemetery?

The Code of Canon Law of the Catholic Church defines only two places as being sacred: the Church building where Jesus resides in the tabernacle; and the Catholic Cemetery which is an expression of faith and an extension of the parish community. Catholic Cemeteries are both a consolation to the bereaved and an inspiration to the living.
