The Gospels tell us that Jesus himself was wrapped in linen and laid in a tomb hewn from rock. A large stone was rolled across the entrance to seal the tomb. We have no greater example of the dignity of the Catholic mausoleum.
Racine Catholic Cemeteries provides mausoleum entombment at Calvary Cemetery and Holy Cross on Highway 32. A variety of crypt configurations are available, including single crypts, companion crypts and deluxe companion crypts. Inside crypts have marble plates, while crypts in the garden mausoleums have stones made of granite. Our staff will outline all of the options and costs for you.
Crypt Entombment Regulations:
- Single Crypts are for one full size casket.
- True Companion Crypts are for two full size caskets, or four cremated remains, or for one full size casket and two cremated remains. (End to End)
- Deluxe Companion Crypts are for two full size caskets, or four cremated remains, or for one full size casket and two cremated remains. (Side by Side)
- Abbey Crypts allow for one or two additional full size caskets directly below floor level.
Our mausoleums are constructed of the finest materials and designed for permanence. They have features such as chapels, benches, courtyards, and beautiful landscaping to encourage prayer and reflection.
