Our Lady of the Lake Sacred Heart Cemetery
“Canon Law describes two locations as being sacred; The Church and The Cemetery.
Considering the sacredness of the body, the place where it is laid to rest must be sacred also.”
Our Lady of the Lake Parish is blessed to have its own sacred burial grounds for its members and their families. It is lovingly and carefully maintained by a group of parishioners, The Cemetery Committee, committed to serving the faithful with a consecrated place of burial.
Sacred Heart Cemetery is located just three miles south of town on Stafford Road on land donated by Mr. Prosser in the late eighteen hundreds. Many of the early settlers of Lake Oswego are buried in Sacred Heart Cemetery, including George Rogers and some of his family.
Sacred Heart Cemetery has spaces available for ground burials as well as Columbarium niches for ashes.
Members of the parish who wish to plan ahead may call the Parish Office with questions or to arrange for a personal visit with the Cemetery Manager, Margaret Matthies.
Planning ahead gives you:
*More time to research and consider your options without a rush.
*A sense of accomplishment knowing arrangements are made.
*Fewer family concerns – less to worry about.
*Financial benefit – lock in at current price.
