Welcome to the Catholic Cemeteries: Holy Cross Cemetery and New Cathedral Cemetery.
Burying the dead is one of the Seven Corporal Works of Mercy. The other works include feeding the hungry, caring for the sick and visiting the imprisoned. These Works of Mercy remind us of the need to give dignity to the body in life and in death. The body is the Temple of the Spirit since each of us are made in the likeness of God. The body in life and death, therefore, should be respected fully.
