Mission Statement

Because of our faith perspective, Diocesan Catholic Cemeteries cannot be looked upon primarily as a business. Rather, they are sacred places where the dead repose in Christ until their resurrection and where the bereaved are ministered to.  This ministry, as Catholic Christian witness, is to give consolation to those who have been touched by death because of the hope of eternal life which our faith in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ gives us. Through baptism, we have been baptized not only into the Lord’s redeeming death, but also His Resurrection. We are then people of hope and our cemeteries are likewise places of hope, which can give comfort to those who are mourning. Consequently, the work of those who staff our cemeteries is to be marked by welcoming, compassion, faith, healing, and hope.

Currently, our annual Memorial Wreath Program is underway.  If you are interested in ordering a Christmas Wreath for any grave, crypt or cremation niche location at any of our 4 cemeteries, please click on the Memorial Wreath Program link to your left or call the main office for information (814-838-7724).

Upcoming masses celebrated by Father Thomas Fialkowski at Gate of Heaven Cemetery Chapel are scheduled for Saturday November 17 at 9:00 AM and Saturday December 15 at 9:00 AM
