JGS Cemetery

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 Catholic cemeteries in the Archdiocese of Washington. Arranging for a proper Christian burial in accordance with church teaching is our final and lasting witness of our resounding "Yes" to Jesus's call. A Catholic cemetery also serves the living faithful.  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.
