From the time that the Sacred body of our crucified Saviour was held in the tomb to await the hour of His glorious Resurrection, the Church has been most solicitous to surround with an atmosphere of Christian Faith and reverence of the burial of those who will rise with Christ. In the Mass of Christian Burial and Final Commendation and Farewell at the grave, the Church gives voices to her belief in the Christian doctrines of the Resurrection of the body, the Communion of Saints, and life everlasting: but as further seal and symbol of that faith she sets apart and blesses the place in which the bodies of her faithful departed await the day of Resurrection.

In the very earliest days Mother Church found it necessary to make rules and regulations which would protect the sacred places and the relics laid therein. She could not and would not allow anything within the holy precincts which would desecrate them, lessen their beauty, or bring dishonor to the dead.

To insure the sacred character of the Allentown Diocesan cemeteries of the Latin Rite in accord with the mind and traditional practice of the Church, and to establish and maintain good order, please click here or the top menu button for the rules and regulations that are in effect.
