Regarding COVID-19, Phased Re-opening & Catholic Cemeteries' Practices

Published Friday, May 14, 2020

All seventeen locations of Catholic Cemeteries are open and will continue to provide interments.  However, the management of Catholic Cemeteries are continuing to adjust services in light of the best practices urged by the CDC, local authorities and archdiocesan leadership as phased re-opening begins during this COVID-19 pandemic.

All committal services will continue to be held at the roadside at all Catholic Cemeteries’ locations, unless family can provide adequate pallbearers to carry the casket to the graveside.  We ask that funeral service providers bring a church cart to all committal services.  Catholic Cemeteries permits the presence of ten individuals only, inclusive of a priest, deacon or minister.  “Higher risk” individuals, as determined by the CDC, are encouraged not to attend committal services.

Calvary Cemetery office will re-open on Monday, May 18.  Both Calvary and Resurrection Cemeteries’ offices remain closed to walk-in traffic.  To schedule a burial, please call the respective office.

Our cemeteries remain open to visitors, but we strongly urge guests to obey all directives and recommendations from local and state government agencies.  Chapels continue to be closed to the visiting public.  Please contact Catholic Cemeteries’ office for more information.

As always, I remain grateful for your continued assistance and partnership as we continue our ministry to bury the dead, to comfort those who mourn and to pray for the living and the dead.

Mary, Health of the Sick and our Mother, pray for us!

In Christ, 

Matthew W. DeWitt, Managing Director of Administration Services

Work began on Monday, August 3, 2015 and was completed ahead of the six to eight week time frame the private contractor estimated. Based on input from Missouri Department of Conservation every ash tree in the cemetery needed to be removed due to Emerald Borer infestation. This work was done by the employees of Catholic Cemeteries. As a separate issue, the water retention in various areas of the cemetery also was addressed. A private landscaping company re-graded sections using state-of-the-art laser technology. All lawn-level markers were removed during this time and replaced to their original locations upon completion of the re-grading. Monuments were not affected and burials continued as usual. Redbud, Yoshino Cherry and Kwanzan Cherry trees will be planted throughout the cemetery this fall. Thank you for your patience while these necessary improvements and beautification were completed.
