Welcome to the Catholic Cemeteries Association

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

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).

Letters From The Director

Our Catholic cemeteries in the Diocese of Cleveland stand as a reminder that we are recipients of God’s mercy. Loved in life, we are united in death. We honor the value God has placed in creating each of us and acknowledge the beauty of our differences.
