Burial Choices

Interment/burial choices will vary among our nine active Catholic Cemeteries, mausoleums, and columbariums.

In-ground Burials

When selecting an in-ground burial location keep in mind that the type of memorialization permitted may differ by cemetery and section. Some locations permit upright monuments/headstones while others use slant markers or flat bronze markers.

Groups of adjoining plots may be purchased together to accommodate multiple family members. Large families may prefer to purchase land to create a private estate or build a private mausoleum.

Mausoleums

Many of our cemeteries have community mausoleums that offer crypts for full-body interment or an option for multiple cremains in one crypt. We offer a variety of crypt options including single, double, tandem, Westminster, and marble and glass front, lighted niches are also available in many mausoleums.

Columbariums

Columbariums are primarily outdoor structures with niches and marble slab covers (shutter fronts) which contain the deceased member’s name, birth, and death years.
