As employees of the Catholic Cemeteries, we dedicate ourselves to the service of the Church by reverently laying to rest those who have died, caring for those who grieve, and maintaining our Cemeteries as a sacred place of prayer and reflection.
The six Catholic Cemeteries, St Mary, Holy Sepulchre, St. Joseph, Queen of Heaven, Holy Cross, and St. Michael, exist to meet the needs of individuals and parishes in Diocese of Oakland in preparation for, at the time of, and following the death event. Our ministry is rooted in the reality of the human person as an embodied spirit. That embodiment is sacred, for it locates the human spirit in history and in place. In providing a consecrated place for burial, we treat that body with dignity after death. We serve as a symbol of the extended community of the Church - a community unbroken by death - and, like sacrament of Eucharist, celebrate the death and resurrection of the Lord which offers to us the promise of eternal life. – less–ZoomInfo
