About our Cemetery

Burial of the dead is one of the Corporal Works of Mercy. Our faith strengthens us in the belief of the Resurrection and our parish is fortunate to provide a consecrated resting place until that time.

Our parish cemetery is modern and attractive. Remember that it is always wise to obtain cemetery lots before the need arises.

Although the Catholic Church now allows cremation, burial of the body is still the preference. Even when cremation is requested, to eliminate abuses, the cremated remains should be buried in consecrated ground. This brings definite closure and reaffirms our Catholic faith in bodily resurrection on the last day.
