Why be buried in a Catholic cemetery?

Lush, green grass. Beautiful trees. A sense of peace and tranquility. Most cemeteries have the same look and feel, but at Catholic cemeteries, things are different. As Father Daren Zehnle explains, Catholic cemeteries have a faith-filled spiritual element and a deep respect for the deceased, and it’s those reasons and more, why you should be choose to be buried there.   

Unlike non-Catholic cemeteries, the 103 Catholic cemeteries in Illinois are on consecrated ground and are managed by local parishes, boards, or associations. To find a Catholic cemetery near you in our diocese, click here.
