At Time of Need


The Staff at Catholic Cemeteries is honored to assist you and your loved ones at the time of need.  There are four diocesan cemeteries in the Diocese of Santa Rosa.  Our experienced Family Services Advisors will guide you through the steps to select the type and location of final resting place to suit your need, and to assist in simplifying the process for you.  Our Field Services Staff will care for your loved one with dignity and respect.  Our cemeteries in Santa Rosa and Saint Helena have separate chapels where Mass may be celebrated or the final committal prayers may be offered.  Our Petaluma cemetery has an area available in the mausoleum where Mass or committal prayers may be offered.

The Catholic Cemeteries provide the final resting place in the journey of faith.  If needed, our staff can provide contact information for local funeral homes and crematories.


Payment Options At Time of Need


We encourage families to plan for their arrangements in advance of need to allow the flexibility to remain within your personal budget.  If no prior arrangements have been made, we accept cash, check, MasterCard, Visa and Discover cards for your convenience.  The arrangements for services must be paid in full prior to interment or entombment. Memorialization can be paid separately after the service.  Markers and specialty items will be ordered after payment has been received.


Pre-Need Planning


Pre-Need Planning for your future has many benefits and can be done calmly while providing the opportunity for thoughtful selection and involvement by family members who would like to remain together in kinship until the glorious day of the Resurrection.  Delaying this decision often means having to make a hurried selection at the time of family crisis.  Our experienced Family Services Advisors will be happy to guide you through the decisions of selecting your final resting place and the numerous options that are available. 


Payment Options for Pre-Need Planning


Catholic Cemeteries offers several payment options for pre-need planning.  We accept some credit cards (MasterCard, Visa and Discover) and cash or check.  Where appropriate we allow financing of certain items.  Financing requires a minimum down payment at the time of purchase and regular monthly payments.  Currently there is a discount for payment in full at the time of purchasing a pre-need arrangement.
