Advance Planning for Cemetery Burial
Why Plan In Advance?

As Christians, we can only truly live if we are prepared to die!
The Catholic Cemeteries of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee are committed to assisting you in preparing for the greatest event of your life. Advance planning for death is not a sign of hopelessness. Rather, it is an expression of trust, faith and acceptance in the Resurrection of our Lord.

The Archdiocese of Milwaukee Catholic Cemeteries offer prearrangement Service Counseling to provide our Christian Faithful the opportunity to discuss and decide upon the various burial, memorialization and Christian funeral options, all in an atmosphere free from the anguish and grief that accompanies a death.

Spiritual Implications
Christ said, I am the Resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. (John 11:24)

Making arrangements for death for death is an acceptance of your mortality and a proclamation of your faith and belief in Christ's words. These firm choices put your spirituality into action.

Contact one of our Family Service Counselors at the Cemetery of your choice for personal assistance and complete information.
