  • Shows and sells gravesites to Parishioners and those who are eligible to be buried in the Cemetery
  • ​Works with the Funeral Home to have the appropriate gravesite opened for interment
  • ​Communicates Funeral information to those that dig the graves
  • ​Keeps accurate up-to-date records of gravesite sales, burials, and transfers to family, etc.
  • ​Plans Cemetery maintenance projects such as topsoil and seed for sunken graves, removing dangerous trees, etc.
