Our Mission

Catholic Cemeteries' mission in the Diocese of San Bernardino is to be advocates for families at the most difficult time of their life.  

We will strive to promote Catholic burials and funeral traditions for all who seek the Holiness of consecrated ground. 

We will carry out this mission in a manner that reflects the dignity of the human spirit as taught by our Lord Jesus Christ.

 From the Bishop of the Diocese of San Bernardino                            Most Reverend Gerald R. Barnes

 "Our dream of a first class facility has become a reality...Our Lady Queen of Peace is a very beautiful Catholic cemetery and is centrally located in the city of Colton, making it easily accessible to families in    the Inland Empire."

 From the Director of the Office of Catholic Cemeteries                    Deacon John W. Barna

 "It has always been a core belief in the Catholic Church to respect all life even in death....It is my great  hope that the Office of Catholic Cemeteries will become a resource for all who seek comfort as they  journey with their grief. You can trust that we will strive to find relevant answers that address current  needs and any new challenges dealing with end of life issues."
