We Acknowledge that the Catholic Cemetery is established to carry out the sacred religious function of burial and care for the resting-places of the deceased.

We accept the responsibility of implementing the religious function under the direction and supervision of the local Bishop.       

We believe in and are firmly committed to the teachings and rich tradition of the Catholic Church with regard to the deceased and the sacredness of the cemetery in which their bodies rest.

We recognize the deep religious significance of the Corporal Work of Mercy involved in the burial of the dead and reverence for the deceased.

We are dedicated to the respectful care of the people of God who even in death remain  part of the whole Christian community.    

We are committed to encouraging Catholic prayer and devotion for our deceased brothers and sisters, especially in our cemetery.

We oppose any effort to minimize or destroy any Catholic teaching that relate to death, burial and devotion to the departed souls.

We will proclaim through our words, work and example the sacredness of the Human Body, the belief in the Resurrection and the Christian virtue of hope.
