Catholic Cemeteries . . . A Legacy of Faith

Our Mission


The Catholic Cemeteries meets the needs of individuals and parishes in the Diocese of Santa Rosa in preparation for, at the time of, and following the death of a loved one.  In providing a consecrated place for burial, we treat the human body with dignity and respect after death, and offer an environment that encourages frequent visitation with attendant prayer for the deceased, an environment in which love is remembered and faith is awakened and strengthened. We serve as a symbol of the extended community of the Church – a community unbroken by death – and celebrate the death and resurrection of the Lord, which offer to us the promise of eternal life.






Web Cemeteries & Facebook


In celebration of life and sharing our legacy of faith with future generations, we are offering a new feature at Catholic Cemeteries, Web Cemeteries to assist in finding and memorializing your loved ones. You may also Join us on Facebook to learn about upcoming events.



Catholic Cemeteries of the Diocese of Santa Rosa


The four Diocesan Cemeteries are:  our main office at Calvary Catholic Cemetery in Santa Rosa, Calvary Catholic Cemetery in Petaluma, Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery in St. Helena, and Saint Francis Solano Catholic Cemetery in Sonoma.  Each cemetery represents a legacy of faith handed down by many generations for more than a century, a sacred place to honor our beloved departed.  They provide an opportunity for reverence, reflection and prayer as we ponder our Catholic teachings “life has changed, not ended.” Public Masses are held annually on:  Memorial Day and All Soul’s Day (visit the events page for details).  Cemeteries are open daily from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm for visitation.
