Sacred Places of Prayer and Remembrance

Catholic cemeteries are sacred places of prayer and remembrance.

CrossJust as we are brought to a sacred place, the Catholic Church, at the time of our birth to be baptized and enter into the life of Christ, so too are we brought to another sacred place, a Catholic cemetery, at the time of our death to await the resurrection of the dead and the promise of eternal life that comes to us through life in Christ. Interment in a Catholic Cemetery is a statement of our belief in that everlasting life and our belief that at death life is changed, not ended.

The Diocese of Madison provides the following cemeteries as sacred places for prayer and remembrance: Resurrection in Madison, Mount Olivet in Janesville, and Mount Thabor and Calvery in Beloit. We hope that the information provided in these pages will help you to understand the Catholic funeral rites and provide you with information that will help you in planning for your future needs.

As always, our staff is ready to assist you with any personal questions you may have. Feel free to contact them at any time. There is no obligation to you.

Revelation 14:13

John heard a voice from heaven say:

"Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on."

"Yes," said the Spirit, "let them find rest from their labors, for their works accompany them."

The Word of the Lord.

John 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
