Thank you to all our current and past donors for your support!
Albany Diocesan Cemeteries carry out the sacred responsibility of Catholic burial and provide dignified care for the resting places of our beloved dead while they await the Resurrection and the promise of eternal life.
We engage in the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy as we respect the deceased, bury the dead, and offer comfort to families we are privileged to serve. We pray daily for the living and the dead, including your family. We strive to maintain and preserve our cemeteries as a matter of duty and to reaffirm our commitment to preserve and protect them for all time.
Unfortunately, expenses continue to rise. Our operating budget is simply not sufficient to address all needed repairs and landscape issues. Thanks to the past generosity of donors, we have been able to address many issues that impact the appearance and safety of our cemeteries, but there is more to be done.
We ask for your partnership to help fund restoration and preservation purposes. It is our goal to keep these consecrated grounds worthy of the blessing that was bestowed upon each cemetery. Please consider a gift to help. 100% of your donation will be used for renovations in the Cemetery of your choice from the list below.
Thank you for supporting your Catholic Cemetery. “May the Love of God and the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ bless and console you and gently wipe away every tear from your eyes…” (Rite of Committal)
P.S. Did you know that when you pre-plan your cemetery needs, that revenue supports your cemetery? You may also make a bequest to your Cemetery in your will.
