The Catholic Cemeteries Association is committed to continue to provide the essential service of burying the dead. In light of the current events relating to the Coronavirus and concern for the health and safety of all of our employees and families who have loved ones in our cemeteries, The Catholic Cemeteries Association is once again in need of changing current burial procedures.
Effective Monday March 30, 2020, all 16 Diocesan Cemeteries will now limit burial services to:
• Direct Interments
• Direct Entombments
• Direct Inurnments
Families are welcome to visit the cemetery after the burial has been completed to pay their respects.
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.
