Mission Statement

The Catholic Cemeteries of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia carry out the sacred duty of providing a dignified Christian burial for all of our beloved faithful departed.

Recognizing that our bodies are Temples of the Holy Spirit, we dedicate ourselves to providing respectful care for the grounds which contain those mortal remains.

Mindful of our obligation to comfort the sorrowful, we are committed to providing Christian compassion and counsel to those left behind in mourning and in sorrow.

Answering our call to spread the Good News, we proclaim through our words and actions our hope in the Resurrection and our belief in Our Lordís promise of eternal life.

 

Notice to Lot Owners and Concerned Families

It is anticipated that due to the severe weather related conditions we have encountered this winter, our grounds will require additional care to repair many sections damaged by the storms.

Since we constantly work to maintain the beauty of our cemeteries, we are asking your cooperation and patience at this time of restoration.
