Why A Catholic Cemetery

Because of our belief in the resurrection of the body, in some shape or form, at the end of time. The Catholic Cemetery is a sacred place, consecrated ground. It holds the physical body once the temple of the Holy Spirit, until the Lord comes again in glory. Just as the human body deserves to be treated with dignity and respect in life, so should it be treated in death. Calvary Cemetery offers burial in a place where dignity and respect and the sacredness of life are witnessed to. It is a place where the faithful continue their witness to the entire world of the Good News of Jesus Christ and the hope we share in resurrection. Calvary Cemetery offers a place for ritual prayer, such as the Rite of Committal for the dead and the celebration of the Eucharist. It is also a place for private prayer and reflection.
