Holy Cross Provides Peace of Mind for 95 Years
Holy Cross is the only Catholic Diocesan cemetery serving San Diego County. As part of the ministry of the Church, Holy Cross serves families with full Catholic burial services, including the sacred privilege of the Catholic liturgy for burial. Holy Cross was dedicated in 1919. With over 40 acres at the time, it became the answer to the demands of Catholic families throughout San Diego County.
Mrs. Henrietta Keith became the first burial on Feb. 1, 1919. Since then, over 65,000 people have been interred in consecrated ground. In 1939 the Chapel Mausoleum was built, a three-story addition was completed in 1996 creating hundreds of spaces for caskets and urns. In 2001 our Holy Apostles Garden Mausoleum was expanded. We continue to offer all forms of ground burial and entombment, including the burial and inurnment of cremated remains.
Our experienced staff offers a welcoming approach to families as they bereave the loss of their loved ones and plan for burial. As Catholic Christians, we believe the promise of eternal life trumps death. Since 1919, Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery provides peace of mind and offers families continuity, sacred tradition and respectful care.
