Works of Mercy Program
The burial of our Catholic dead is a mission of the Diocese of Tucson Catholic Cemeteries. We are asked to serve the Faithful in the Diocese of Tucson no matter their financial circumstances. Consequently, we answer the call and provide burial services to less fortunate members of our church for little to no payment. This work is titled The Works of Mercy Program. The services provided include the opening of the grave, the Committal Service and the closing of the grave.
If you wish to support our efforts in this sacred work you may do so by a donation to the Diocese of Tucson Catholic Cemeteries. Money received for the Works of Mercy Program is segregated into a special account for the sole purpose of offsetting expenses the cemetery incurs by the burial of those in need. Donations are tax deductible.
Please make your check payable to: Diocese of Tucson Catholic Cemeteries.
On the memo line please note: Works of Mercy Program.
That will identify where we are to put the money.
Thank you in advance for your generosity. Your much needed funds help us help others.
God bless you,
Thomas B. Hanlon
Diocese of Tucson Catholic Cemeteries
