The Catholic Cemeteries Association remains committed in providing the essential service of burying the dead. In light of the current events relating to the COVID-19 virus and concern for the health and safety of all of our employees and families, The Catholic Cemeteries Association will be administering the following changes to our burial procedures:
Effective Monday June 28, 2021, committal services may be accommodated within one of our chapel mausoleums or at graveside. Please know that face coverings are optional for fully vaccinated individuals, however, individuals who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear a face covering and practice social distancing regardless of where the committal takes place.
For COVID 19 Burials / Entombments:
• COVID 19 Mausoleum Entombment – Committal to take place outside the mausoleum. Casket will then be wrapped with standard mausoleum protection prior to entering the building. Once the entombment has been completed family may enter the mausoleum.
• COVID 19 Ground Burial – Committal prayers may be conducted at roadside. Attendees will then be asked to remain and witness from their cars during the burial process. Once the burial has been completed and cemetery workers have departed, family may proceed to the gravesite if desired.
Mausoleums are available once again for visitation, however, individuals who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear a face covering and practice social distancing.
We thank you for your patience and understanding.
Welcome to The Catholic Cemeteries Association
In our Catholic cemeteries, we, the living members of the Church, gather to pray for those who have gone before us and to reflect on the great promise of “the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.” We have great confidence that one day we will be reunited with our deceased loved ones. All those baptized in the faith share in this great promise. Catholic cemeteries are visible signs of Christ’s promises to His Church and of our unwavering hope in the fulfillment of those promises.
