Metro Detroit — For Catholics, cemeteries are much more than a place for the bodies of deceased friends and family.

“(Cemeteries) are a sacred place that provides an appropriate environment respecting the life of the person, and expressing our belief that the person has been handed over to God and is now enjoying life in the Kingdom,” said Fr. Timothy Babcock, liaison to Catholic Funeral and Cemetery Services (CFCS), a ministry of the Archdiocese of Detroit.

CFCS oversees the five Catholic cemeteries falling within the region of the archdiocese: Southfield’s Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, Detroit’s Holy Cross Cemetery, Brownstown’s Our Lady of Hope Cemetery, Monroe’s St. Joseph Cemetery and Wyandotte’s Mount Carmel Cemetery.
