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
Located in Southfield, Michigan, Holy Sepulchre Cemetery dates its beginning to 1928. Situated on beautiful forested grounds it has a calming effect on all who visit, or stroll alongside Lake Geneserath, home to many and various birds and waterfowl like geese, ducks and even an occasional blue heron or egret. It consists of about 350 acres of land and sits like an oasis in the busy enclave of Oakland County.
Many monuments and private family mausoleums herald the names of many prominent individuals from Michigan. One Michigan Governor, Harry Francis Kelly (Governor 1943-1946) rests here. Many politicians also are there, such as Congressman John D. Dingell Sr. (father of the current Congressman). Leaders of the Archdiocese of Detroit rest there, including all the bishops and archbishops from Bishop Peter Paul Lefevre to Cardinals Edward Mooney and John Dearden. Many Detroit clergymen rest at Holy Sepulchre, with some as the noted radio-priest Fr. Charles Coughlin and the founder of Focus:Hope Fr. William Cunningham interred in family lots. Many religious organizations, both male and female, priests, brothers and nun are also there. Included among them as the Felician Sisters, Religious Sisters of Mercy, Basilian Fathers, Little Sister of the Poor, Franciscan Fathers, Congregation of Christian Brothers, PIME Missionary Fathers, Carmelite Sisters, the Society of Mary (Marists), Dominican Friars, Dominican Nuns, Daughters of Divine Charity, and others. Veterans of all wars and conflicts from the Civil War onward rest there. One Civil War “hero”, Captain John C. Hardy of the 2nd Michigan Infantry, who led a successful countercharge at Fort Steadman in March, 1865 to beat back the last serious offensive of the Confederate Army before the city of Petersburg, Va. is there. After the war he fathered three priest-sons and one daughter-nun. The sports world is definitely represented there by Tiger owners Frank Navin and Walter O. “Spike” Briggs, as well as baseball players Charlie Gehringer, Billy Rogell, Steve Gromek, Al Cicotte, Harry Heilmann, Vic Wertz and Barney McCosky. Many leaders of industry such as the seven Fisher Brothers are there. Viola Liuzzo, the Civil Rights Worker slain in the 1960’s is there. Many funeral directors of the area are there, too numerous to mention. And many ordinary and humble Catholics, who achieved their own stature in life rest beside the well-known at Holy Sepulchre.
The Main Mausoleum at Holy Sepulchre dates back to 1950, with additional Outdoor Mausoleums and Columbaria erected in the mid-1990’s.
All in all, this is sacred ground, dedicated to the memory of all who rest within its boundaries. It is a place ideal for prayerful, quiet thoughts and meditations, and a fitting example of our Christian faith and beliefs.
The Archdiocesan Catholic Cemeteries, Holy Sepulchre, is an extension of the Catholic Church which ministers to the faithful at significant moments in their lives - primarily the moment of death of a loved one. All services, available to the families and friends of the loved one, are designed to emulate the comfort and compassion of Jesus. Our ministries are rooted in a firm belief in the sacredness of human life.
