About Our Cemeteries

Lord Jesus Christ, by your three days in the tomb, you hallowed the graves of all who believe in you; And so made the grave a sign of hope that promises resurrection even as it claims our mortal bodies. -- Christian Rite of Burial

Can a non-Catholic be buried at St. Thomas Aquinas Cemetery?

Yes. Feel free to contact the office for specific questions at 508-697-9528.

Does the Catholic religion allow cremation?

Yes, but remember that cremated remains are to be treated with dignity. Ashes should be placed in a worthy vessel and interred or entombed.

Has St. Thomas Aquinas prepared for perpetual care?

Yes. St. Thomas Aquinas invests 10% of all lot sales in long-term, dividend-yielding investment vehicles with the Archdiocese of Boston.

What are the guidelines and rules at St. Thomas Aquinas Cemetery?

St. Thomas Aquinas has temporarily adopted the rules and guidelines set forth by the Catholic Cemetery Association and the Archdiocese of Boston as it reviews the policies that will best serve the parish and local community.
 

What's going on in the cemetery?

This week a veritable wall of concrete appeared in our last open section of cemetery. These are double-depth lawn crypts, which are being installed to ensure that we will be able to continue to meet the burial needs of our parish for several more years. Excavation is scheduled to begin the week of October 6th.

More information about the state of the cemetery and ongoing strategic planning will be provided in in the Annual Financial Report next month. 

Please watch future bulletins for upcoming promotions for this new offering.

A very special thank you to the Comita family for providing two beautiful new maple trees in this area of the cemetery as well!
