Memorial Opportunites

Catholic Cemeteries of Oshkosh, Inc. has in the past been the recipient of memorial funds from families wanting to honor a loved one. Our most recent memorialization project was the installation of the Stations of the Cross at Sacred Heart Cemetery. Benches were installed that provided a place to rest while praying the Stations. Each bench has a name of a family or loved one in memory.

For those seeking to leave a lasting legacy, please consider any of these options:

Columbarium at Calvary Cemetery

Statues of St. Raphael and St. Jude

When Bishop Ricken asked the Catholic Parishes of Oshkosh to take over operation of all three Catholic Cemeteries, we inherited a Columbarium at Calvary Cemetery.  We would like to memorialize our three new funding parishes with statues of St. Raphael the Archangel, St. Jude the Apostle and an appropriate symbol for Most Blessed Sacrament, such as the Last Supper or a Chalice and Host.

Cost: approximately $5,000 to $8,000 for each statue with an appropriate memory plaque.

Lord, for your faithful people, life is changed, not ended. When the body of our earthly dwelling lies in death, we gain an everlasting dwelling place in heaven.
