“Protect the graves of your loved ones. Preserve from disarray God’s vineyard from which the angels will gather the great harvest into God’s storehouse. Do not destroy the tombstones which were erected by loving hands. Do not disturb the peace and tranquility of those who have reposed from earthly cares.”

– Blessed John Moschus

The burial of your deceased loved ones with dignity, and the ongoing care of their graves are the main mission of the Diocese of Lansing Catholic Cemeteries and St. Robert Bellarmine Church.

St. Robert Catholic Church in Flushing was founded in 1875, and its parish cemetery (located on West Carpenter Road in Flushing) was established on Sept. 21, 1893. The cemetery still has openings and accepts both full-size vaults and cremains. Please call the St. Robert Parish Office (810) 659-2501 for details. For more information click below.

Unfortunately, there are incidents when grave decorations become damaged or missing during our mission. We are sorry that happens and want you to know that these incidents are not deliberate nor show a lack of compassion for your deceased family members or friends.

We regret that we cannot guarantee to safeguard your grave decorations from damage or disappearance, and we also regret that we cannot accept the responsibility for their damage or loss

Praying for our departed loved ones
