About Catholic Cemeteries


Catholic Cemeteries of the Diocese of San Jose provides you a sacred place for burial with reverent care. It is a place where your family can remember you or your loved ones in a peaceful and hope-filled setting close to your home. We offer you three locations, Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Los Altos, Calvary Cemetery, in East San Jose and St. John the Baptist Cemetery in Milpitas. We welcome you and your family to come and visit our sacred grounds and experience the peaceful and prayerful place.

Family Support


How do we tie in faith with hope?

Through our scheduled workshops, we will help you take care of your Advance Directives (Power of Attorney for Health Care) to clearly state your requests regarding health care if you are unable to do so for yourself. You will be able to select and name the person that should carry out your wishes. Through your directive, your family and health-care providers will respect and appreciate this legal statement and be grateful for the clarity and certainty that you provide.

We also offer workshops on end of life issues from a Catholic perspective.


Your Catholic belief is that all things come from God and you are the steward of God’s gifts. As a steward, your love and wishes are to pass on your gifts to your family, friends, and community.

Through the partnership of the Diocese of San Jose’s Stewardship and Development, we offer you regularly scheduled seminars from an Estate Planning and Probate Lawyer that can answer some of your basic questions. Let us help you and your family by providing you with tips and pointers for your estate planning on how to pass on your gifts. For information about our services, please contact us at 833-304-0763.
