Catholic Cemeteries

The Office of Catholic Cemeteries is a ministry of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston devoted to the works of mercy that pertain to dealing with death in the context of faith. Specifically, we maintain and develop the cemeteries, owned and operated by the archdiocese, as sacred places dedicated to the religious purposes of:

  • Burying the dead
  • Praying for the living and the dead
  • Comforting those who mourn
  • Witnessing to our shared belief in one, holy, Catholic, and apostolic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sin, and the resurrection of the dead

We offer educational programs, which provide information on Catholic burial practices, Catholic approaches to death and dying (including end of life issues), and the "nuts and bolts" issues faced by people having to make funeral arrangements. In these presentations, we promote the full use of the Order of Christian Funerals, and the benefits of preparing all funeral arrangements (from liturgy to funeral home to cemetery) before the time of need.
