Catholic Cemeteries of the Archdiocese of Washington

About Us

The Catholic Cemeteries of the Archdiocese of Washington are quiet sanctuaries that unite earthly life and eternal life for families in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia. A meeting place between hope and destiny in Jesus Christ.

Because Catholic cemeteries are formally consecrated to God through holy ritual, the earth set apart and designated by the Church for use as a burial plot becomes part of both the local and the universal Church. On this sacred ground, the Lord will provide consolation in your bereavement, as well as peaceful rest for those that sleep in the hope of eternal life.

The managers of the Catholic Cemeteries of the Archdiocese of Washington are well prepared to offer guidance in the “Catholic way” of funeral planning and burial. Working with parish priests and local funeral homes, we are honored to respectfully assist your family in all areas of funeral arrangements.
