St. Mary & Sacred Heart Cemeteries

​St. Mary, Mother of God Church is entrusted with the stewardship of two cemeteries: St. Mary, Yatesboro and Sacred Heart, Sagamore. These two cemeteries are places of honor, dignity and respect, as they are placed where the mortal remains of our faithful departed lie in rest awaiting resurrection.

Our parish is committed to the care and maintenance of both of our parish cemeteries.

All records and business for both St. Mary Cemetery and Sacred Heart Cemetery are handled by the St. Mary, Mother of God parish office.

​Burials in our parish cemeteries require the purchase of a grave and the payment of the interment fee. The purchase of a grave is handled directly through our parish office either in advance of, or at the time of need. The interment fee is typically included in the bill of services provided by a professional funeral director at the time of death, or as part of the pre-planning of a funeral.

If you are interested in the purchase of a gravesite in Sacred Heart or St. Mary Cemeteries and would like details, please contact the parish office.

Burial Policy

Our parish cemetery policy limits the number of burials in an individual grave to a maximum of two, whether burying bodily or cremated remains. Also, all caskets and cremation urns must be buried within a vault. Finally, all interments at both of our parish cemeteries must be conducted by our cemetery personnel.
