The Catholic Cemeteries Association meets the needs of families, individuals, and parishes surrounding the death of a loved one.
In providing a consecrated place for burial, we treat the deceased and their families with dignity and respect, and offer a spiritual and physical environment that encourages frequent
visitation - where faith is strengthened, hope is awakened, and remembrance is accomplished through perpetual care.
We represent a Church family that is unbroken by death. We celebrate the death, and resurrection of our Lord, which offer to us the promise of eternal life.
Scripture tells us that when Sarah, the wife of Abraham, had died in the land of Canaan, her husband performed the customary mourning rites for her. Then he addressed the people in these words: "Although I am a resident alien among you, sell me from your holdings a piece of property for a burial ground, that I may bury my dead wife" (Genesis 23:4).
Our Catholic cemeteries in the Diocese of Cleveland stand as a reminder that we are recipients of God’s mercy. Loved in life, we are united in death. We honor the value God has placed in creating each of us and acknowledge the beauty of our differences.
CCA Bereavement Coordinator Nancy Romaine will lead several recitations of the Rosary this month. Please join her in the hope that this beautiful prayer will bring healing to all who have experienced the loss of a loved one.

Restoration is underway on the retention basin at All Saints Cemetery. For ecological reasons, the basin has been dredged and will be made deeper. In some areas, the basin was less than 12 inches deep. Continued neglect would have resulted in the basin being completely filled in. Work should be complete toward the end of fall.
Winter decorations are now available. Winter decorations are permitted beginning November 1, 2015. The CCA offers a variety of items for placement on your loved one's grave, crypt, or niche. Please view the brochure for a complete selection.
