St. Bridget Catholic Church Cemetery Policies


All cemetery functions and procedures shall be consistent with and follow Diocese of Superior cemetery policies and procedures.

  • Records are kept in the parish office, at the diocesan chancery office and with the Cemetery Sexton.

  • The sexton typically responds to plot inquiries and meets with the families for purchase arrangements.

  • Although preferred, a person does not need to be a member of the parish to be buried in the St. Bridget cemetery. The pastor has the final authority to determine the acceptability of any internment.

General policies:

  • Records of grave sites and maps are kept with the cemetery Sexton, with backup files at the parish office.

  • All burials must be coordinated through the sexton or the parish office.

  • Cemetery plot sales are arranged by the cemetery sexton and as a backup by the parish administrator.

  • Cemetery plots are surveyed in an East to West direction. Grave Monuments/ markers must be of an approved type, and located at the head (West end) of the plot site. Foot markers are allowed but must be flush with the ground. Any unusual grave marker request requires specific approval prior to installation.

Flowers and grave decorations:

  • Flowers or memorials placed at the grave site shall be of natural materials – plastic flowers are not allowed and may be removed at any time.

  • Any additional plantings at individual graves shall be approved by the sexton or the parish administrator prior to being installed.

  • Wreaths or seasonal grave decorations shall be cleaned up by the family after the memorial season has ended, in the spring and fall.

  • Outdated and old grave decorations, stands or holders may be removed by the groundskeeper during fall and spring clean-up periods. Any materials not picked up by the family will be disposed of by the groundskeeper.

Grounds keeping:

  • The groundskeeper shall take all precautions to preserve and respect the dignity of grave sites. This being the overall intent, the groundskeeper has the right and ability to access all areas of the cemetery to complete the tasks of mowing, planting, cutting trees, filling low spots, and all other care of the cemetery property.
