HONORING THE TRADITIONS OF CATHOLIC FAMILIES

“THE COMMUNION OF SAINTS”

The Diocese of Orange owns and operates four cemeteries and four mausoleums within Orange County, California, on behalf of 64 Catholic parishes, four Cultural Centers and their members.

 

A FEW WORDS FROM OUR BISHOP:

OCCEM- Honorinig TraditionsVann

The Catholic Cemeteries provide a pre-need planning program for Catholic families in Orange County. Burial arrangements are among the most important, inevitable decisions a Catholic must make. Because of the many emotional and financial savings that result by planning these arrangements in advance of need, all Catholic families need to learn about their options for final arrangements.

Most Reverend Kevin W. Vann,
Bishop of Orange

 

WE ARE HERE FOR YOU

As the only Catholic Cemeteries in Orange County, we are committed to the beliefs and traditions that have bound families together for generations. Whether it’s at a time of immediate need or that you wish to make arrangements well in advance to spare your family the necessity, you can rely on the Diocese of Orange Catholic Cemeteries for advice you can trust, fair pricing, and exceptional personal service. A variety of burial and funeral options, including the disposition of cremated remains, are available to you.

Both funeral services and cemetery arrangements must be handled. We want to make sure our Catholic traditions and preferences are honored, because we understand first-hand the distress families face when a loved one dies without having made all these arrangements ahead of time.

Right now, in one convenient meeting, we can help you pre-plan all final arrangements. This entails choosing your own funeral service details, naming and funding your funeral services, the prayers to be said at the vigil, the Funeral Mass, the music, flowers and choice of your final resting place.

The Catholic Funeral Plan™ is designed to ensure that sufficient funds are readily available when the time comes. Thus it serves to protect families from rising funeral costs. This unique program was designed to ease the financial burden for Catholic families and to make sure a person’s final wishes for their funeral are known and are guided by the pastoral care of the Church.

 

IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS


DECIDE WHAT’S BEST FOR YOU

Preplanning assures that your wishes and personal instructions are carried out.

YOUR FAMILY WON’T BE BURDENED

This is an onerous responsibility you would otherwise leave to family and friends.

ORGANIZES PERSONAL INFORMATION

Gather in advance the information that is needed during the actual funeral arrangements.

REMOVE THE RISK OF EMOTIONAL OVERSPENDING

Preplanning further protects your family from having to make difficult financial decisions during an emotionally stressful time.

WAITING COSTS YOU MORE

Preplanning avoids inflation and future price increases. You can take advantage of today’s pricing and arrange financing best suited to meet your needs.

 

BENEFIT ENTITLEMENTS

Insurance policies and government benefits can be confusing. Whether it’s Veterans or Social Security benefits, we’ll make sure you understand your entitlements now—not later.

 

PEACE OF MIND

You can rest assured that everything has been arranged and taken care of the way you prefer without burdening others who would otherwise have to guess what your wishes would have been when you are no longer there to guide them.
