Family Service Counselors

The wisdom of the Christian Church is timeless, yet timely. It is of the ages and for today. In a context of faith, with its promise of eternal life, the Archdiocese of Milwaukee Catholic Cemeteries will help you make careful and informed choices that will respect Christian funeral and burial traditions, as well as reflect your contemporary preferences. Our daily ministry and work is serving the nearly 3,000 individuals and families who are placed in our care annually. With our long experience and special philosophy, we are capable of guiding your at-need or pre-need funeral and burial arrangements to express something ever ancient…yet ever new.

These Catholic Cemeteries offer a variety of burial options, products and services within our eight cemeteries with their seven mausoleums. While respecting your preferences — personal, familial, emotional, financial and spiritual — our Family Service Counselors will guide you with a full, unhurried, in-depth disclosure of our burial options, services and products so you can make prudent and informed choices.

The Family Service Counselors are for many the face of and interface with the Catholic Cemeteries. They cover all eight Cemeteries on a rotating basis, either on duty or on call for duty. For staffing patterns, see Hours. The pricing for all Counselors at all Cemeteries is uniform. No location has different pricing, nor can a Counselor offer different costs.

Counselors can work with any individual/family seeking assistance in during the period we call "pre-need", or before there has been a death and before the "need" for burial.

When the situation is "at-need", after there has been a death and at the time when burial is needed, counselors on duty or called for an appointment, have precedence.
