Sacred Grounds - Sacred Memories

Feel closer to loved ones, and to God, amongst the sacred Catholic grounds of the Historic Church. Founded in 1798, the pristine Old Mission Cemetery is the oldest in North County still actively in operation; and all people of goodwill are welcomed. It is a sacred oasis of gardens, statues, fountains, and above all – infinite serenity. No matter the reason for your visit, we welcome the gift of connecting with you and your Catholic faith.

We Welcome Your Visit

We offer families the convenience of holding a Catholic funeral Mass or prayer service, a burial, and reception all here at our Mission. If you’re considering the Old Mission Cemetery for your family, take a moment to schedule a tour, and allow us to guide you through the tranquil grounds we have looked after for almost three centuries.
