Regarding COVID-19 & Catholic Cemeteries' Practices

 Published Monday, March 16, 2019

Out of an abundance of caution, following yesterday’s decree by city and county officials and under the direction of the leadership of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, I am mandating the following for Catholic Cemeteries:
1)  All committal services scheduled until April 6 must be limited to, and not exceed, 50 persons.  If there is an insufficient number of pallbearers, the service must be held in a cemetery chapel.  If there is an insufficient number of pallbearers and the interment is to occur in a cemetery without a chapel, committal rites may be held at the parish church or funeral home and interment will take place without service and family at the cemetery.    
2)  “Higher risk” individuals, as directed by the CDC, are not encouraged to attend committal services.  Both city and county officials have asked that no more than 10 “higher risk” individuals be gathered at any one place and time.    
3)  Effective Tuesday, March 17, offices at Calvary Cemetery and Resurrection Cemetery will close to visitors.  I encourage people to call or e-mail our office staff during regular business hours for information regarding burial locations, services or available grave spaces. 
4)  Pre-need and at-need appointments must be scheduled through our offices and I ask that no more than three family members meet with our staff at a time.  
5)  Chapels and offices will be cleaned regularly and “high touch” areas disinfected following each chapel service or appointment.  
During this national health crisis, your cooperation and calmness will assist Catholic Cemeteries and those whom we serve.  I am grateful for your assistance as we continue in our ministry to bury the dead, 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

Nestled at roadside near the shared family monuments, this striking unit offers single niches for one urn.

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.
