Consecrated in 1959, two archdiocesan cemeteries serve the faithful of South Florida with Catholic burial. Making a Catholic cemetery your choice is one final and lasting way to affirm your devotion to your faith and to your loved ones.
For more than six decades, the Church has provided the Catholic South Florida community with a sacred, peaceful enclosure for those who have lived within the faith and a measure of comfort to those who come in bereavement.
Catholic Cemeteries perform a sacred function on behalf of the entire Christian community. They serve as symbols of the extended community of believers, a community unbroken by death.
Each cemetery, one in Broward County and one in Miami-Dade County, consists of 125 acres designed, developed and landscaped to provide a setting of beauty and tranquility. They offer beautiful outdoor mausoleums, traditional ground burial, lawn crypts, and niches and ground burial options for cremated remains. Glass-fronted columbaria are also available in the chapel mausoleums, where remembrance Masses are celebrated regularly. Families are encouraged to witness the full Order of Christian Funerals by holding the wake or visitation, Mass of Christian Burial and finally the Rite of Committal at the cemetery.
