Pre-Planning & Services
Today, about half of the purchases of burial space made in our Catholic Cemeteries are made in advance of death (Pre-need). This shows both a sense of thoughtful planning and a sense of economic prudence. The decisions made today will be your own which gives you peace of mind now, and your loved one’s peace of mind later. We offer all-inclusive services from purchasing the grave space and headstone to pre-paying for the interment and burial vault.
The Catholic Cemeteries have a central office located in Calvary Cemetery. All purchases of burial rights for Calvary, St. Michael, St. Louis and St. John Cemeteries are made at this central office. Our family counselors offer you their cemetery knowledge and expertise to help you make an educated burial selection. The goal of our counselors is to inform you of the different burial options and services that we offer. They are not on commission, therefore, there is no additional fee for their services and the price of your burial selection is the same. In addition to a Pre-need burial space, select services and merchandise may also be prepaid.
The Catholic Cemeteries has a memorial department with skilled designers that can help guide you in the custom design of a meaningful, lasting monument or grave marker based upon your wishes and specifications of your grave or lot.
Our family service counselors are available for appointments Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and from 9:00 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.
For pre-need graves, crypt or niche sales, the Catholic Cemeteries require a 10% down payment. The balance can be paid in 30 days (same as cash), or in twelve or twenty-four equal installments, with applicable interest. Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express are accepted.
