Archdiocese of Milwaukee Catholic Cemeteries
7301 West Nash Street
Milwaukee WI 53216
Through the years, the burial places of those awaiting the resurrection have been viewed as "sacred sleeping places." A sense of reverence is always expected while visiting these sacred grounds.
Every decent human act which enhances the human body and spirit, such as walking or riding a bicycle, can be considered wholesome and holy. Thus, we see no contradiction in using the cemetery for these and other similar activities. We do, however, respectfully ask those using these sacred grounds to extend the following courtesies.
The cemetery is committed to public safety and security. The police, as well as private security companies, have access to our grounds and modern security practices are employed for our buildings.
Review the hours of operation for the various archdiocesan cemetery locations.
During the Fall Cleaning Period - October 15th to November 15th, the cemetery staff totally cleans the cemetery. Review this for additional information.
In order to maintain consistency and beauty throughout the cemetery, the Archdiocese of Milwaukee has developed these guidelines for decoration.
Decorations can be placed starting the Friday before the holiday and may remain in place through the Sunday following the holiday, approximately ten days.
