Our Mission

The Catholic Cemeteries Association meets the needs of families, individuals, and parishes surrounding the death of a loved one.

In providing a consecrated place for burial, we treat the deceased and their families with dignity and respect, and offer a spiritual and physical environment that encourages frequent visitation - where faith is strengthened, hope is awakened, and remembrance is accomplished through perpetual care.

We represent a Church familiy that is unbroken by death. We celebrate the death, and resurrection of our Lord, which offer to us the promise of eternal life.

What Did They See?

Lent is a time when most Christians reflect on a variety of life’s trials and tribulations. These forty days provides each of us with the opportunity to reflect on our relationship with Christ and our connection to the Catholic Church that He created.

A Message From Bishop Lennon

Scripture tells us that when Sarah, the wife of Abraham, had died in the land of Canaan, her husband performed the customary mourning rites for her. Then he addressed the people in these words: "Although I am a resident alien among you, sell me from your holdings a piece of property for a burial ground, that I may bury my dead wife" (Genesis 23:4).

Bereavement Corner

CCA Bereavement Coordinator Nancy Romaine will lead several recitations of the Rosary this month. Please join her in the hope that this beautiful prayer will bring healing to all who have experienced the loss of a loved one.
