Points of Interest:
Queen of Heaven Cemetery is the location of our new mortuary. It is the first Catholic mortuary in the Diocese of Phoenix. St. Timothy Garden Mausoleum has 392 crypts and 500 glass front niches. There is inspirational artwork throughout the cemetery.
On entering the cemetery, you will notice a beautiful feature of Our Lady of Guadalupe and St. Juan Diego (Juan Diego was canonized in 2002). There is a water feature and the statue behind it. The statue honors the Blessed Virgin Mary under the title of Queen of Heaven. In the center of the cemetery you will see the Holy Family Shrine depicting a youthful Holy Family: Joseph, Mary, and the child, Jesus. The Gospel of Luke states that Jesus lived with his parents in Nazareth until he began his public ministry around the age of 30. A Memorial to the Unborn is at the base of the shrine. The Holy Spirit Garden sculpture entitled “Promise” expresses both the promise of the Resurrection of the spirit and the promise of God’s eternal and abiding love for those who must let go. The dove is a traditional symbol for the Holy Spirit who is called Comforter and Promise in the scriptures. The seven lifted hands represent the gifts of the Holy Spirit: Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Piety, Fear of the Lord, and Knowledge. To the right is St. Ann’s Garden.
