Points of Interest:
Queen of Heaven Mortuary, is a 10,000-square-foot facility located on the corner of Harris and Baseline and provides Catholic families of the Diocese, mortuary and cemetery services. The funeral home strictly adheres to the traditions and teachings of the Catholic faith as part of a cemetery ministry that is designed to work with the parishes of the Diocese to meet the burial needs of Catholic families.
A growing concern among Catholic leaders throughout the United States has been the trend in American society to move further and further away from the burial traditions of the Church. To help reverse this trend, the National Catholic Cemetery Conference recommended that the church consider opening its own funeral homes to restore the traditional role of the funeral ministry, from the physical preparation of the body to the completion of the committal service at the Catholic Cemetery.
Just as Jesus’ body was carefully and sacredly prepared for its final placement in the tomb, this new funeral home enables our funeral and cemetery ministry to provide a comprehensive Christian burial service for our Catholic community.
The expansion of the Church’s ministry into the funeral service area is another way by which our faith conveys its concerns for those who have died and for the faith and welfare of those left behind. Offering the opportunity to access the services of a priest, funeral home and cemetery at one location affords a great convenience for those entrusted with the responsibility of making funeral arrangements.
