Other Catholic Organizations
As an “extension” of our church “community” Catholic Cemeteries and Mortuaries strives to acquaint all in our diocese with the purpose of our mission and our ministry towards the Corporal Work of mercy, “to care for the dead”. As a Not for Profit organization, our primary focus is service. Our service can reach out to Catholic families before a crisis or through a face to face information exchange that outlines the process involved with pre-planning and paying for services through one of our six catholic cemeteries or Queen of Heaven Mortuary. This educational exchange will highlight the traditional and spiritual advantages of burial or funeral arrangements administered by a church owned cemetery or funeral home.
