New Catholic Cemetery to be Blessed by Bishop Parkes on April 26th

All are invited to participate in this historic event.

While we are still celebrating the resurrection of Jesus this Easter, Bishop Gregory Parkes will be blessing and dedicating the new Resurrection Catholic Cemetery in Hillsborough County.

The cemetery took eight years to be established and is located on a 120-acre nature preserve in Seffner surrounded by grand oak trees. Resurrection provides all above-ground arrangements, the only cemetery of its kind in Florida.

“We are truly blessed to have these sacred grounds, where the faithful may come to remember their loved ones who have gone before us,” wrote Bishop Parkes in a letter to the faithful about the new cemetery.
