The Catholic Church teaches that death is not an end, but the beginning of eternal life. Our Catholic
cemeteries serve as reminders that we must all one day pass from this earthly life to a better one.
Catholic burial is an honor and a priviledge, as well as a right of baptized Catholics and their
families. It is also the last reaffirmation of our faith.
The Catholic Church not only encourages the burial of Catholics in our cemeteries, but welcomes their
non-Catholic family members as well. The Church teaches that those who were together in life should not
be separated in death.
