Memorial Gardens

A peaceful, ecumenical cemetery located in the shadow of Christ Cathedral.

The Memorial Gardens were dedicated in 1991 and offer many different burial options within tranquil grounds accented by flowing fountains, beautiful landscaping and majestic art installations. The Diocese of Orange is proud to offer Catholics and those of all faiths and backgrounds a beautiful, serene final resting place. The cemetery will soon expand by three quarters of an acre to provide additional interment space.
