Welcome to peace of mind during this difficult time

For over 100 years, the Diocese of Tucson Catholic Cemeteries have been serving our community, generation after generation. We understand the loss of a loved one is difficult and emotional, so we are here to serve and comfort your family. Our caring team will do everything possible to assist you in making choices that will honor your loved ones with a respectful and deserving burial service. One that they deserve as a child of God. Our cemeteries are sacred, hallowed ground – a sign of hope and continued belief in that everlasting life, even in death. Thank you for allowing us this honor of entrusting your loved ones to our care. May it be a great source of consolation to those who will now have to continue their journey in life without their beloved.

Choosing a Catholic Cemetery

More than a place to bury the dead, Catholic cemeteries are holy grounds for worship and prayer, similar to our churches. They are sanctuaries where the Catholic faith, both in life and death, is celebrated and honored. They witness our devotion to Jesus and the faith we share in the Resurrection. Learn More.

Honoring the Memory of a Loved One

Our beautiful grounds have been consecrated for the burial of our family and friends who have shared their love and faith with us. It is a sign of hope in God and his promise of everlasting life.
The Catholic Church proclaims that each person was created for eternal life. All of us must pass through death in order to enjoy the fullness of God’s promise of everlasting life in heaven. At death, life is changed, not ended.

Sacred images and statues throughout our cemeteries remind us to pray for the souls of all who have departed this life.
