Frequently Asked Questions
Catholic Cemeteries Association offers monument lots, which include monument-sharing lots, as well as flush marker graves. We also offer cremation graves or niches, mausoleum crypts, and columbaria.
Yes, but only an American flag is allowed. This flag must be the cloth flag on the 2’ wooden pole. These flags will be removed by cemetery personnel as they become tattered or torn. Bronze flag holders are available through the Veterans Affairs office, or a V.F.W. post.
Of course you may. We do not separate families.
All you need to do is write a letter to our Executive Director, outlining your reason for this request. Please include your contact information.
Shrubs are not allowed. As generations pass on, and people move away, there is no one to maintain these shrubs, and over the years they become grossly overgrown, unsightly, and unmanageable. The roots from these shrubs can also disturb the monument foundation and possibly cause damage. New shrubbery will be immediately removed.
The burial of animals is prohibited in any of our cemeteries.
Only two flush markers are allowed per grave.
Simply contact the cemetery office where your loved one is interred, and the staff can guide you to the location, and provide a cemetery map for future reference.
Advanced planning seminars are offered throughout the year. To register for a seminar, please contact our Outreach Coordinator or visit our Events page to see a list of upcoming seminars.
Depending on the year of purchase, you would need to refer to your contract or contact the cemetery office where your lot is located.
No. If fully paid, the space is never reclaimed and resold.
Yes. The revised Code of Canon Law (1983) states: The Church earnestly recommends the pious custom of burial be retained; but it does not forbid cremation, unless this is chosen for reasons which are contrary to Christian teaching. (Canon 1176, paragraph 3)
If it is a family owned monument or flush marker, you may go to a memorial dealer of your choice who will submit to the cemetery for content approval. If it is a cemetery-owned monument, you can order the inscription from the cemetery.

No, all costs for graves, crypts, and niches include a one time Endowed Care fee.
No, Catholic Cemeteries Association offers a variety of payment options, including various financing packages throughout the year.
