Temporary Procedure Changes


The Catholic Parish Cemeteries Association
Diocese of Pittsburgh



The Catholic Parish Cemeteries Association is committed to continue to provide the essential service of burying the dead. Considering the current events relating to the Coronavirus and concern for the health and safety of all our employees and families who have loved ones in our cemeteries, The Catholic Parish Cemeteries Association is once again in need of changing current burial procedures.


Effective Monday, March 30, 2020, all Parish Cemeteries will now limit burial services to:

      • Direct Interments

      • Direct Entombments

      • Direct Inurnments


Families are welcome to visit the cemetery after the burial has been completed to pay their respects.


We understand that these are very difficult and challenging times and ask that everyone please adhere to our policy for the health and safety of all concerned.
