   Its location in western Mobile makes it extremely convenient for most Catholic families.  Additionally, a portion of each purchase made in this garden is donated to the Diocese and the Parish of the purchaser's choice.

 As Archbishop Rodi has said "Mobile has grown and it is beneficial for our Catholic people in the Mobile area to have another cemetery, blessed by the Church, where the bodies of our loved ones may be reverently interred."

Funerals and Rites

Catechism of the Catholic Church

1683: The Church who, as Mother, has borne the Christian sacramentally in her womb during his earthly pilgrimage, accompanies him at his journey's end, in order to surrender him "into the Father's hands." She offers to the Father, in Christ, the child of his grace, and she commits to the earth, in hope, the seed of the body that will rise in glory. This offering is fully celebrated in the Eucharistic sacrifice; the blessings before and after Mass are sacramentals.
1684: The Christian funeral is a liturgical celebration of the Church. The ministry of the Church in this instance aims at expressing efficacious communion with the deceased, at the participation in that communion of the community gathered for the funeral, and at the proclamation of eternal life to the community.
