Sorensen Chapel FD126

History

The City of Hayward is known as the “Heart of the Bay,” not only for its vital location, but also for its accepting and caring environment. The same holds true for Sorensen Chapel. Conveniently located in central Hayward, Sorensen Chapel is among the finest and largest funeral homes in our community. Established in 1910, the Sorenson Bros. Mortuary was the oldest family owned and operated business in Hayward, California. Four generations of the Sorensen family have been active in caring for the surrounding communities in their time of need.

In July of 2007, the Diocese of Oakland Catholic Cemeteries assumed responsibility for the Sorensen Family business and wishes to continue the Sorensen motto of Care, Compassion, and Trust to families and their loved ones. With a deep-rooted history, the Oakland Dioceses’ are committed to carrying on the long established and proud tradition of the Sorensen Family.
