Just as we celebrate the sacrament of Baptism in a Church when we enter parish life, the burial rite celebrated in a Catholic cemetery completes that Tradition. Holy Cross is the only cemetery in San Diego that offers weekly prayer for your eternal life — the final step in Catholic Funeral Rites. As Catholics, we believe in the dignity of each person, the importance of Baptism, the reality of the Resurrection of Jesus, the promise of Eternal Life, and the celebration of the Eucharist as the Great Act of Thanksgiving for Redemption.
Located on holy ground, Holy Cross offers a place for quiet reflection, devotion, meditation and prayer as well as the sacrament of the Eucharist, celebrated every Friday in our beautiful Mausoleum Chapel. As a Church, we believe in the Communion of Saints and call on the prayers of the faithful to help us in our journey to Heaven.
Over the past 95 years, Holy Cross has been entrusted with more than 65,000 burials. As part of the Catholic Church, its stability is expected to endure long after private or commercially-run cemeteries. When you choose a Catholic Cemetery, you are laid to rest with people who share the same faith, traditions and heritage. Giving your loved one a proper burial is a Corporal Work of Mercy and an act of love.
