Dearly Beloved,

Catholic Cemeteries and Funeral Homes serves an important role in assuring that the faithful departed are treated in a loving and respectful manner as well as showing compassion for those who are grieving. Just as Christ was laid to rest in a tomb, our Catholic cemeteries are sacred places for laying to rest our loved ones. Catholic Cemeteries and Funeral Homes, through their spiritual atmosphere as well as regular Masses and prayers for the deceased, are a testimonial of our faith in eternal life. Not only will your departed loved ones be treated with the utmost of respect, but those who are grieving will be offered support during this very difficult time. I encourage you to entrust Catholic Cemeteries and Funeral Homes with your preplanning needs, as well as when experiencing the loss of a loved one.

Sincerely Yours in Christ,

Thomas J. Olmsted
Bishop of Phoenix
