We cannot overemphasize the sacredness of a Catholic Cemetery and the respect
due to the bodies of the faithful it contains. The fact that you may have loved ones buried
in the cemetery, and continue to honor them is proof of your own feeling on this matter.
Catholic teaching has always presented the human body as the temple of the Holy Spirit
and, therefore, as an object of great reverence.
St. Joseph Cemetery can accommodate the wishes of your loved one’s or yours, in
respectfully burying the deceased. We have several options available, such as the
traditional in ground burial, full body entombment in one of our Mausoleums, or
inurnment of cremains in a Niche either in a mausoleum, or in our recently added
columbarium outdoors, or in ground burial.
St. Joseph Cemetery gives you the opportunity to come pay your respect to a loved one
by spending some time in one of our four mausoleums, or if you prefer just spending
some time at the Bethesda Meditation Garden. Here you can spent time by the Bethesda
Angel fountain in a peaceful and prayerful atmosphere.
We suggest that you give consideration to making your burial pre-arrangements. This will
give you peace of mind, that when you, or a loved one dies these arrangements will be
taken care of. Upon death, there are countless decisions that have to be made in a very
short period of time, because due to the lack of time, arrangements are made in a
hurry, with regrets after the burial takes place. Come and visit us at your convenience,
take time to look around and see the options available to you. Payment arrangements can
be made on pre-need arrangements. Please call our office at 716-282-1379 to talk to a
