Montana Catholic Cemeteries

and

Resurrection Cemetery Association Catholic Diocese of Helena

Mission Statement and Vision

Montana Catholic Cemeteries’ and Resurrection Cemetery Association’s Mission is to ensure that the deceased are treated in accordance with the Rite of Committal/Burial per the Norms of the Catholic Church and the Order of Christian Funerals.

Montana Catholic Cemeteries’ Vision is to provide the most meaningful places of interment by people of all faiths, traditions, and circumstances. This is accomplished by: living our commitment and dedication to the Rite of Committal and helping gather the Community of the Catholic Church to understand the proclamation that God has created each person for eternal life; by reverently treating the body as a Vessel of the Spirit; by committing our very best effort to the families and communities of the deceased.

Our faithfulness to our mission and vision will create a healthy, self-sustaining ministry in support of the Church.

Lost Little Ones

There is nothing to adequately describe the unbearable sorrow and debilitating pain brought about by the loss of a child. It is perhaps the most devastating experience a family can go through. Very few know how to deal with this numbing loss, and young families are seldom prepared emotionally or financially. We are committed to ensuring all people may be returned back to God in accordance with the Order of Christian Funerals regardless of the family’s financial means. In light of this, we are able to offer plots and some other services at no charge. Our highly dedicated Family Service Advisors are able to assist you with your needs.

We are honored to announce an ongoing fundraising effort entitled “Little Ones Lost” and ask your financial support in assisting us to provide a quiet sanctuary and eternal resting place for those who have left us too soon.

Your contribution is deeply appreciated and goes directly to providing services for families needing assistance with interring and memorializing their children.
