(100 reads)
  • Q. Does the Catholic Church allow cremation?
  • A. Yes. While there is a clear preference for traditional burial, as Christ was buried in the tomb, cremation has been accepted for over forty years. Cremation should be done in accordance with the Church’s teaching in regards to the sanctity of the human body and belief in the Resurrection.
  • Q. Are Niches available at the Old Mission Cemetery?
  • A. Yes. Double and Single Cremation Niches are still available for immediate and/or pre-need purchase through Catholic Funeral & Cemetery Services. In addition, CFCS provides funeral and cremation services to the community, becoming a complete resource for your cemetery and funeral needs. Monthly payment options are available, with no finance or interest charges. Whether you are interested in advanced planning or in need of immediate assistance, please call Frank at 925-784-6666

Dear Friends

Thank you to all who have faithfully fulfilled your Capital Campaign pledges as well as those who gave one-time gifts. I am grateful, too, for those who in addition have been regularly giving additional gifts to the campaign. We have stopped the monthly collection for now as we prepare for our third campaign which we will piggyback onto the upcoming diocesan campaign. A lot of work continues to take place as we move toward the building of our new parish church. I hope to have good news concerning this in the near future. Please know you and your loved ones have a place in my Masses and prayers. Peace and love, Fr. Manny
