Catholic cemeteries offer pre-need planning.
The Catholic Cemeteries Association has experienced, caring Family Service
Representatives to provide both At-Need assistance (for a death that has already
occurred) and Pre-Need planning. Pre-Need planning allows for a less
stressful-more informed decision by relieving loved ones of the emotional and
financial burdens at a very difficult time.
The Right Time To Make A Cemetery Selection
All major decisions are best made with careful planning: The purchase of a home;
putting money aside for your children's education; Investing for your
retirement. The planning you do today assures that your goals will be met in the
The same is true for selecting a cemetery and a family interment site. It has
been shown time and time again that pre-need planning results in a better
informed decision, while relieving loved ones of the task of having to make the
choice at a very difficult time.
The selection of a final resting place is inevitable, and will be made either by
you or your surviving family members. You can consider your options more
carefully by choosing a burial site or mausoleum space in advance.
A member of the Catholic Cemeteries Association staff will sit down with you and
explain the various types of services and products that are available. By
discussing and comparing the choices this way, you'll be better equipped to make
a well-informed decision.
Perhaps, more importantly, pre-need planning relieves your family of the burden
of choosing a site and making other arrangements during a time of great sadness,
stress and confusion. It also guarantees that your wishes are fulfilled and
helps to minimize any undue family pressure. Pre-need cemetery selection also
alleviates some of the financial burden at a time when there are other expenses
your family must meet.
