Catholic Cemeteries of the Archdiocese of Louisville

Our Mission Statement:

“The services of Catholic Cemeteries are a ministry of the Archdiocese of Louisville. We offer the rite of burial to the Catholic Community and all of God’s people. We commit ourselves to the Gospel and Catholic tradition. We affirm the sacredness of human life and profess the resurrection of the body and everlasting life.”

A Catholic cemetery is a prayerful place and is considered an extension of the parish ministries, providing a final resting place for those baptized into the Catholic faith as well as people of other faith traditions.

The Catholic Cemeteries have been providing experienced and caring service to our Catholic community since 1851. The Catholic Cemeteries are responsibly maintained in perpetuity.

I am the Resurrection and the Life...
