Best Practices

CCC is available to facilitate members investigating appropriate responses to the many challenges faced by Catholic cemetery directors, administrators, office staff, interment staff and facility maintenance personnel. While it is recognized that each Catholic cemetery operation is somewhat unique, it is also true that a guide to the Best Practice when performing duties is of value. This page is not meant to provide an “end all answer” to specific concerns, but rather to be a resource to gather information to provide suggested Best Practice procedures to follow when faced with a challenge.
