An Introduction

As Christians, we live in hope and preparation for the life to come. Our ministry is committed to assisting you to prepare for the end of your life peacefully and prayerfully. Planning for death is not a sign of hopelessness; rather, it is an expression of acceptance, trust, and faith in the resurrection of our Lord.

Christ said, “I am the Resurrection and the life. All who believe in me, even if they die, will live, and all who live and believe in me will never die.”

John 11:24 

Planning Information

We offer legacy planning information to provide the faithful with the opportunity to discuss and decide upon various burial, memorial and funeral options. We encourage pre-arranged burial space and estate preparation for families to ensure that their will, advance health care directive and an enduring power of attorney (if necessary) are in place.

A Catholic Estate & Burial Planning Guide is our comprehensive blueprint in making necessary decisions about many estate and legacy planning topics connected to death and dying.

Advance Planning Presentations

“Some years ago attended a presentation by Gardens of Gethsemani at our church and found it very informative, after which my husband and I made all our ‘pre-arrangements.’ Highly recommend this to everyone.”

“I had often wanted to end my days at Gardens of Gethsemani, but for some time, I put it off. Finally, a death in my own family prompted me to take action and request a meeting. During and after the meeting, with a well qualified representative, I felt much better. I feel that by arranging a place for myself and others, my earthly remains are secure, in holy ground and a sign for those following us of what we all stood for when we lived.”
