Although death can be profound and often painful, we also believe that by his death and resurrection, Christ conquered death and made possible salvation for all men.
We believe in God who is creator of the flesh; we believe in the Word made flesh in order to redeem the flesh; we believe in the resurrection of the flesh, the ultimate fulfillment of both the creation and redemption of the flesh. – Catechism of the Catholic Church, #1015
In burying the faithful, the Church confirms her reverence for the great dignity of the human person created in the image and likeness of God, as well as her faith in the resurrection of the body and hope in the life of the world to come.
Financial concerns should never stop one from choosing a place of permanent remembrance. The All Souls program provides an opportunity to every family, despite financial difficulties, to have their loved ones reverently buried in a sacred space.
There are no words for the pain that follows the loss of a child. The Baby Program seeks to acknowledge this loss, and offer support to parents facing this deep grief. At any age of gestation and at no cost to the family, parents can choose to have their child reverently buried in sacred ground through a communal burial service. To honor the privacy of the parents in attendance, the times and dates of these services are generally kept private.
