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).

Our last mass at Gate of Heaven Cemetery for 2018 will be celebrated by Father Thomas Fialkowski Saturday December 15 at 9:00 AM.  The monthly mass schedule for 2019 will be posted soon.  As always, everyone is invited for fellowship following mass where coffee and homemade snacks are served.  Please click the Special Events link to your left for more information.

The visiting hours at all of our Mausoleums will be extended for the Christmas Season beginning Monday December 17 thru New Year's Day from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM 
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Everyone!
