A Sanctuary for the Living

Our Catholic Cemeteries are an extension of your parish; a place for prayer, reflection, hope and remembrance. Cemeteries express our faith, reverence and respect for sacred burial on consecrated grounds.

A permanent place for remembering on consecrated ground, in a natural and inspirational environment.

" We are the heirs of a rich tradition in the Church, which has provided beautiful and powerful rites of passage for us as we commend to God those we love at their passing. What many of us cannot put into words is expressed so remarkably in our ceremonies and rituals. Our Catholic Cemeteries provide us with the added blessing of gathering on holy ground where the living meets the dead, crossing that mysterious divide between time and eternity. "

The Most Reverend Jaime Soto, Bishop of Sacramento

What is the importance of a Catholic Cemetery?

Catholic Cemeteries are natural sanctuaries that house the temple of the body with the promise of Everlasting Life. These sacred places provide peaceful and religious environments that are conducive to prayer, reflection, and remembrance. The final expression of our faith as Catholics is a blessed and sacred burial in a Catholic Cemetery. It is our opportunity to rest among fellow believers, awaiting the Resurrection to Life Everlasting.

What does the Cemetery offer?

Keeping families together

Family Estates

Family Estates serve as a family’s final gathering place. Three generations of family members may be laid to rest in one location. With this program you maximize the use of space and minimize the cost to your family.
* When the number of inscriptions exceeds what is feasible or permitted, cenotaphs are available as well as bronze plaques which may be placed near the final resting place.

Family Heritage

Our Family Heritage Program allows for graves or crypts already owned by families to be transformed into a family estate. Depending on the grave or crypt selected, cremated remains may be added.

Up to 5 family members may be laid to rest in one grave depending on the location. Space permitting, multiple family members can have their names inscribed on the memorial marker or crypt.*
