Burial Planning

Burial planning


Our parish extends its service to families who are in the process of making a decision about a final resting place in either of our parish cemeteries.  The purchase of a gravesite is an important decision that can be made either in advance or at the time of a funeral.  You do not have to be a member of St. Mary, Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish to purchase a gravesite.  Both Catholics and non-Catholics can be interred in our parish cemeteries.

Buying a gravesite in advance of an impending funeral or death will assure that this important decision can be made calmly, prudently and economically. Purchasing gravesites before the time of need also assures that you will be able to select where you would like to be interred and can take advantage of current prices.

Many people purchase their burial plots many years before their death so that surviving family members will not have to be burdened with the stress of making this decision at the most difficult time of loss and grief. Some families wish to be buried together and purchase multiple cemetery lots to accommodate their whole family.


If you are interested in purchasing a gravesite for yourself, or your entire family, you may call our parish office to make an appointment in order to discuss your particular needs. Often, potential purchasers of gravesites wish to see where different lots are located and decide accordingly. We would be more than happy to arrange to meet with you at either of our cemeteries to view the particular gravesites available.
