A Legacy of Faith

      The Catholic cemetery is the final resting place for the members of our Faith Community on our Journey to God. It is the gate of heaven. Burial in the consecrated ground of the Catholic cemetery allows you to share your faith values with future generations of your family. This legacy of faith is your gift to them. Catholic cemeteries are signs of hope that are places of prayer. They witness our faith in the Lord Jesus and the hope we share in his resurrection.

To Rise with Christ: Vatican Instruction concerning burial and cremation

On October 25, 2016 the Vatican released the instruction “To Rise with Christ” regarding the burial of the deceased and the conservation of the ashes in the case of cremation. This “new” Instruction is really not that new since it reaffirms the long standing teaching of the Catholic Church. However, this provides an opportunity to provide information to our current generation who may not be familiar with the Church’s teaching. “Our people are simply unaware that there is a Catholic way of marking the death of one of our faithful in faith, liturgy, and final disposition of our mortal remains. Selecting cremation does not change that.” (Rev. H. Richard Rutherford, CSC, October 31, 2016)
