What are the benefits of pre-planning a funeral service?

Pre-planning a Catholic Funeral Service

Pre-planning a funeral service is an act of your love for surviving family members. Planning ahead and making your cemetery and funeral arrangements will reduce stress and pain for your loved ones. It also can save your family money by securing current pricing for many of your arrangements.

Cemetery arrangements such as location, plot, markers, headstones and monuments are best planned in advance of one’s passing. The Catholic Monument Design Center enables families to truly customize a headstone. We specialize in designing grave markers, gravestones and monuments for families of the Catholic religion, and the Roman Catholic faith. The Catholic Monument Design Center designs monuments for any Catholic cemetery located within the 14 County regions of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany (most of upstate NY).

Advantages of Pre-planning

Making funeral service decisions in advance is a loving and financially wise decision. While it may feel overwhelming, we have the expertise and resources to guide you through the process.

An Act of Kindness

It’s an act of kindness — of prudent generosity — if we can face these difficult decisions now and settle them for our families before the need arises. This reassurance, comfort and peace of mind helps diminish the stress of decisions made in grief and provides a true and lasting gift for loved ones.

Peace of Mind

The death of a loved one is accompanied by an overwhelming number of tasks for grieving family members. There are many different decisions to be made that require immediate attention. Making these difficult decisions in grief will only add to their overwhelming stress.

Express Your Wishes

By planning ahead, you will be securing all of your individual wishes. Design your gravestone, monument or marker with us. The Catholic Monument Design Center can help you navigate the process and advise you about all of your options.

    I visit the cemetery everyday on my way home from here, and I want to thank you for facilitating a wonderful memory for me and my family.  I am very pleased with the photo.  Thank you so much for your assistance.

    Thank you for giving me such a peaceful place to remember my daughter and father. Terrific staff!

    Thank you for the help in obtaining a grave marker for our uncle John. Your efforts were exceptional and key in getting us through the paperwork hurdle of the VA. Our entire family wishes to express our appreciation.

    I wanted to thank you sincerely on behalf of my family and myself for helping us at a very difficult time. As hard as it could have been, that all seemed to disappear under your guidance, and my daughter and I couldn’t be more grateful. You showed us the perfect resting place, that was such a relief. Thank you for being there for us as Jim was carried to his rest, it all meant so much.

    Thank you so much for your help in fixing my grandparents’ stone.

    You truly have no idea how much this means to my mom and I. What a wonderful way to start this Spring Season.

    Enjoy the ever warming weather.

    Your services to me have been excellent, as my grandparents and great grandmother were cared for as well.  You have given me peace of mind that someday my family will be spared all the indecision and know that I have had my wishes honored, resting in a very beautiful, consecrated place with loved ones.

    My family and I went to view the grave site of my husband, Daniel, over the Christmas holidays. The monument that you designed with my daughter and myself was perfect. It was exactly what we wanted.

    Thank you for your expert guidance. Happy New Year!

    We checked out the headstone and foundation and it was just as planned. We are pleased with the process and with the outcome, it looks both classy and understated, as we had hoped. Thank you, Jeff!
