Calendar: Cemeteries - Administration Calendar
Just as the human body deserves to be treated with respect and dignity in life, so should they be treated in death. The Catholic Cemeteries of the Diocese of Monterey exist to meet the needs of individuals and families in preparation for, in time of, and following the event of death. Our primary focus continues to be the comforting of the bereaved. We strive to serve as a symbol of the extended community of the Church - a community unbroken by death.
Our perpetual care cemeteries provide a full range of burial services including ground plots and crypt sites as well as cremation niches and urn gardens. To promote the wisdom of pre-planning, we offer easy terms with interest free financing. We also celebrate a memorial liturgy on the first Saturday of every month in our cemetery chapels.
Our Catholic cemeteries are places of faith - testimony to the Christian belief in life after death. We have set aside sacred space where life - both natural and supernatural - is celebrated and honored. Welcoming, caring, and healing mark our work as we continue to express Catholic belief and practice in all that surrounds the reality of death. We encourage families to share any questions regarding modern burial practices or concerns about cemetery maintenance with the manager of your local cemetery.
