Explore Cemetery Options

Over the years, the team at Catholic Cemeteries has striven to build multi-generational relationships with families to ensure the deceased's wishes are carried out in a reverent manner. From niches for cremated remains to lawn crypts and multi-sized family plots, we offer all interment or entombment choices that are consistent with the teachings of our Catholic faith.

Contact a memorial planning advisor to learn more about the options below.

Our Lady Sign

We offer a variety of care options for cremated remains, including:

  • Burial in a traditional in-ground gravesite
  • Placement in a niche located in a columbarium or garden crypt
  • Internment in an ossuary​​​​​​​

One or more options for the interment of cremated remains are available at all active Catholic cemeteries. Contact a memorial planning advisor to learn more.

Traditional burials are when a casket is placed in the ground, covered with earth, and a flat or standing stone marker is placed at the location.

Catholic Cemeteries offers traditional burials at all active cemetery locations.

An ossuary is a unit in which to inter cremated remains without an urn. The cremated remains that are added to the ossuary are permanently interred.

Currently the only ossuary is at Resurrection.

Private family sarcophagi are usually made of granite and can be inscribed or decorated with sculpture and adornment.  These structures are meant to be approached without entering.

Private family mausolea are above-ground structures for entombment that can be entered and usually feature a central shrine or window.

Private family estates are generally sold for the use of a single family. Placement of these and other options in any active archdiocesan cemetery may be possible. Please contact a memorial planning advisor for more information.
