About Resurrection Memorial Cemetery
Owned and operated by the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City, Resurrection Cemetery as a not-for profit organization aspires to keep sacred, the committal of loved ones of every faith.
Over the years, Resurrection Cemetery has grown from a pasture-like setting into a fully developed cemetery offering to its patron’s traditional burial sites, garden mausoleums, columbaria and Westminster abbey crypts. We a park cemetery, requiring bronze on granite memorials, rather than the old-world upright monuments.
Our Memorial Chapel is available at no charge to our property-owning families for funeral or committal services. For a small set-up fee, our cemetery staff is able to accommodate those families requesting a funeral mass. The chapel includes a nice sound system and the acoustics are wonderful.
The Archbishop of Oklahoma City celebrates one mass a year at the Resurrection Cemetery chapel at Memorial Day.
Resurrection Memorial Cemetery as founded in 1960 by the Brothers of St. Joseph, one of the most unique of religious communities at that time. The Brothers of St. Joseph, modern-day monks of the 60’s, plotted, planted and were the caretakers of the land which would become the cemetery we know today as Resurrection Memorial Cemetery.
While the Brothers of St. Joseph have long been inactive, the dedicated care and attention they gave this sacred space is at the forefront of the minds of the staff at Resurrection Memorial Cemetery. In that spirit, we seek to serve the community at large, providing comfort to those who mourn, and to perform the final corporal Work of Mercy; To Bury the Dead.
Resurrection Memorial Cemetery is owned and operated by the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City.
