Our mission is to provide guidance and wisdom on end of-life services. While we do charge for our services in what has become a very commercial industry, we are committed as a charity to offer innovative programs that provide financial assistance, free options, and programs to meet the needs of our faith community.
CFCS is here to help bereaved Catholic families suffering the loss of a loved one. Too often, that suffering is combined with physical and social isolation, and the Church has a chance to fill the void of loss with faith and compassion. Our qualified Pastoral Ministers’ will make contact with our recently bereaved families, offering prayer, consolation, and comfort to those in a time of suffering.Click here for more information
CFCS offers at no charge, to anyone, of any faith, who has cremated remains at home or is considering scattering, the dignified committal of the remains at any of our cemeteries. The committal will occur at the All Souls Remembrance Crypt and then the remains will be permanently interred within the consecrated grounds of the Catholic CemeteryClick here for more information
With the Mother Teresa Program, CFCS is able to give back to the community by ensuring that those in need in our community receive sacred and dignified funeral, cremation, and cemetery services.Click here for more information
This unique program allows for graves or crypts already owned by families to be transformed into a family estate. Depending on the grave or crypt selected, a number of cremated remains can typically be added. The plot will serve as a family’s final gathering place, allowing family members who have lived apart to be together on their final journey.Click here for more information
This program provides caring funeral and cemetery financial support for those who have suffered the loss of a child. The program also provides sacred interment services in the Order of Christian Funerals, for hospitals within the community, for the death of an unborn child at any of our Catholic Cemeteries.Click here for more information
Holy Cross Cemetery was organized about the year 1850 in what was then Springwells Township, a suburb of the City of Detroit. Over the years, property was added to the original area which is now known as Section B. The current property is at 40 acres, and Springwells Township is now part of Southwest Detroit.
Although the neighborhood has changed over the years, Holy Cross has still maintained its beauty and dignity with plantings and greenery, and many majestic family memorials, some of which are statuary in nature, but inspirational also. Many of the names on these memorials are dedicated to noted names and families of Detroit and the Downriver Community among whom are John Kronk, noted Detroit City Councilman and who gave his name to the Kronk Athletic Center in Detroit; many priests and clergy are interred here such as Fr. Joseph Dustin, CSSR, the famous banjo-playing priest of Holy Redeemer Parish; many priests from the Redemptorist Order are here; Funeral Directors such as Pinkos, Czopek, Solosy are here. So many people of various backgrounds and nationalities and occupations all repose here in eternal memory and peace. This is the feeling we hope that everyone who visits at Holy Cross Cemetery leaves with - a feeling of peace and tranquility, and a symbol to our Catholic faith.
