Our mission is to provide guidance and wisdom on end of-life services. While we do charge for our services
in what has become a very commercial industry, we are committed as a charity to offer innovative programs
that provide financial assistance, free options, and programs to meet the needs of our faith community.

Pastoral Care Program
CFCS is here to help bereaved Catholic families suffering the loss of a loved one. Too often, that suffering is combined with physical and social isolation, and the Church has a chance to fill the void of loss with faith and compassion. Our qualified Pastoral Ministers’ will make contact with our recently bereaved families, offering prayer, consolation, and comfort to those in a time of suffering.
CFCS offers at no charge, to anyone, of any faith, who has cremated remains at home or is considering scattering, the dignified committal of the remains at any of our cemeteries. The committal will occur at the All Souls Remembrance Crypt and then the remains will be permanently interred within the consecrated grounds of the Catholic Cemetery
This unique program allows for graves or crypts already owned by families to be transformed into a family estate. Depending on the grave or crypt selected, a number of cremated remains can typically be added. The plot will serve as a family’s final gathering place, allowing family members who have lived apart to be together on their final journey.
This program provides caring funeral and cemetery financial support for those who have suffered the loss of a child. The program also provides sacred interment services in the Order of Christian Funerals, for hospitals within the community, for the death of an unborn child at any of our Catholic Cemeteries.
St. Michael’s Cemetery was established in 1880 for parishioners of the Tri-Valley area. More than a century later, the Diocese of Oakland Catholic Cemeteries assumed responsibility for St. Michael’s Cemetery on January 1, 1999 and expanded the services to more fully minister to the local and regional Catholic community.
The cemetery grounds extend across a quaint fifteen-acre property, designed to meet the needs of our faith community. Most of the cemetery is already developed for ground burials, with Our Lady of Guadalupe and St. Michael’s Section being our newest additions. There is a new columbarium in St. Michael’s Section for burial of cremated remains, and space for burial of cremated remains in Our Lady of the Rosary Urn Garden. New garden crypts have been added to St. Michael’s in 2013, allowing St. Michael’s to offer traditional above ground burials.
Services and Features
Over the course of the cemetery’s 130 years of service, more than 2,000 committal services have taken place. St. Michael’s Cemetery offers a large variety of options for traditional ground burial, cremation niche, mausoleum crypts, and family estates. In addition, St. Michael’s Cemetery provides funeral and cremation services to the community, becoming a complete resource for your cemetery and funeral needs.
