The Importance of Pre-Need Planning

A pre-need purchase of internment rights, whether for in-ground burial (Traditional graves or cremation graves), above ground entombment (crypts) or above ground cremation (niches) allows one to make an important decision calmly, prudently, and economically.

In many cases, monthly payments can be made out of current income, thereby conserving retirement income and savings accumulated over the years. Cemetery expenditures are subject to the same spiraling increases in costs as are other purchases; by purchasing in advance of actual need, the prices are locked in and families will not be subject to price increases in the future.

By pre-planning your cemetery needs now, families often experience a greater peace of mind knowing that cemetery alternatives have been selected; that surviving family members will not have to be burdened with choosing the "right" burial alternatives at the most difficult time in their lives.

Preface of Christian Death I, Roman Missal

Lord, for your faithful people, life is changed, not ended. When the body of our earthly dwelling lies in death, we gain an everlasting dwelling place in heaven.
