are they who mourn; they shall be consoled. — Matthew 5:3
Someone you love has died. The void is painful, the finality heart
wrenching. Even with people all around, you feel confused and alone.
Making cemetery and funeral arrangements is necessary but so burdensome.
At such a difficult time, with so much on your mind — will you do
the right thing? make the right decision? leave anything undone?
WE ARE HERE FOR YOU.
Family Service Counselors
Our Family Service Counselors are a phone call away after a sudden tragedy, in anticipation of a loss in your family and, of course, for advance burial planning.
Thus, as a requirement for employment with the Archdiocese of Milwaukee Catholic Cemeteries, every Family Service Counselor must successfully complete a rigorous training course covering the fundamentals of grief, as well as possess a thorough understanding of Christian burial practices. Additionally, many of our Family Service Counselors participate in continuing education programs to understand grief and trauma better. Click here to learn more about our Family Service Counselors.

about Grief Education.
The place and manner of each death is so unique, so variable and
often brings a sense of bewilderment, loss and uncertainty, even
despair. Dealing with death takes time and focused attention to
issues of loss and sadness. In walking this journey, we can experience
the deeper meaning of life in faith. Death is natural. Our faith
in the Risen Christ proclaims death is not an end, but a new beginning.
Our Spiritual Director, as well as our Family Service Counselors will walk with you through the shadow of death to the brilliant
hope of the Resurrection. Please click
