Important Things To Know

 

1.  CERTIFICATE OF RIGHT OF BURIAL:

    • The Certificate of Right of Burial grants only the Right or Privilege of Burial to the Certificate owner and not title to the land itself.

2.   STONEWORK:

    • Only granite of an approved type may be used for monuments or markers. No enclosures are permitted.
    • Only one memorial is permitted for each Certificate of Right of Burial issued.
    • Bronze markers are permissible in selected designated areas only.

3.  ENDOWED CARE:

    • Endowed Care (formerly known as Permanent Care) provides for the special care of the plot at all times.
    • The plot will always receive special attention even though all members of the family are deceased, moved away, or become forgetful.

4.  ANNUAL CARE:

    • Annual Care provides that the grave / plot will be kept in a neat condition at a nominal yearly fee.

5.  SPECIAL MASSES:

    • Special Field Masses are offered at our cemeteries on Memorial Day and All Souls Day.

6.  THE CHURCH AND CREMATION:

    • While the preference of the Church is traditional burial, cremation is permitted.
    • In keeping with reverence of the body, the cremated remains of Catholics are to be buried in a cemetery or entombed in a niche or columbarium.
    • To meet the needs of Catholic families who have chosen cremation, we provide burial in cremation niches and cremation graves.

7.  SPECIAL NOTICE:

    • The period from February 15 to March 30 is traditionally used to prepare the grounds of the cemetery for spring.
    • Insofar as is possible, we ask that you refrain from placing decorations during this period.

8.  RULES AND REGULATIONS:

    • We strive to make our cemeteries the finest of Catholic Cemeteries. The cooperation of all plotholders is essential in order to achieve this goal.
    • The regulations for our cemeteries help us to work and live together as a Christian Community.
    • The Gospel Values of Respect and Consideration for all plot holders are at the core of these regulations.
    • To that end, the well-maintained appearance of the Catholic Cemeteries depends on the consideration and cooperation of all our plotholders and we thank you for your support.
