On November 1st (All Saints Day) 2015, The Covenant Community of Jesus the Good Shepherd was proud to dedicate our new Cemetery. The Cemetery is part of a larger network of Cemeteries in the Archdiocese of Washington (CCAW). The Catholic Cemeteries of the ADW exist to be prayerful resting places memorializing the existence of deceased men and women who now await the resurrection of their body in Christ. In St. John's Gospel (11:25-26), Jesus consoles a distraught Martha with the following, "I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" All people, regardless of their beliefs or economic status are faced with this ultimate question. Arranging for a proper Christian burial in accordance with Church teaching is our final and lasting witness of our resounding "Yes" to Jesus' question. It is also important to recognize that cemeteries are not just for the deceased. A Catholic cemetery also serves the living faithful, providing an opportunity for them to give witness to their living faith. Cemeteries offer the living the opportunity for consolation, hope and remembrance. A cemetery is a tangible monument of the extended community of Christian believers which is unbroken by death.
Our Cemetery is open to people of all faiths. For more information about the Cemetery please review the three brochures below. These brochures include answers to commonly asked questions about in-ground and columbarium burials, pricing information, payment plan options and important contact information.
