Bishop’s Message

Most Reverend Robert H. Brom

 Dear Friends in Christ:

  I urge you to consider the wisdom and convenience of cemetery pre-planning. This approach spares your loved ones the pain of major, difficult decisions at a time of emotional stress and grief. It also insures your choice of location and enables you to make financial arrangements at today’s lower prices.

Holy Cross has recently added cemetery acreage, as well as a three story  addition to our Chapel Mausoleum and a two story addition to our Holy Apostles  Mausoleum.  A varied selection of ground burial sites and crypts are now available.  Traditional upright monuments are still permitted, and encouraged in designated areas. Selections for the interment or entombment of cremated remains are also now available.

Holy Cross, our only Diocesan Cemetery, keeps prices lower than   private cemeteries.  We let you pay final charges, such as opening and closing and markers, now at today’s low prices.  Payment terms allow low initial    investment and “no interest” with up to five years to pay for pre-need accounts.

Mass is celebrated at Holy Cross Chapel in the mausoleum every   Friday,  All Souls Day,  Memorial Day and other special occasions for all those interred and entombed in Holy Cross Cemetery and Mausoleum.

I encourage all of you to avail yourselves of the pre-need and  immediate need programs that Holy Cross provides for all our Catholic people and their families.  The staff at Holy Cross strives to provide personal and sympathetic service.

Sincerely in our Lord,




Bishop of San Diego
