Ascension Cemetery was dedicated in 1998, about the same time the Catholic Life Center was established. It lies on the east side of the Spiritual Life Center in Bel Aire, Kansas. The cemetery contains two black granite mausoleum walls, one dedicated to St. Joseph and one dedicated to St. Mary. The Statue of the Ascending Christ stands high between the two walls on a series of tall black granite pillars. Since the cemetery was established about 25 years ago it has been expanded twice. St. Francis Garden was added as a Natural Burial Area where no vaults are required and no headstones are present. Most recently established was our All Saints Columbarium with over 350 niches available for cremated remains.
Ascension Cemetery contains almost 40 acres with less than half of the ground being developed. The cemetery is well maintained consecrated ground providing a beautiful resting place for deceased family and friends. The park like ground offer a serene place of prayer and quiet reflection that invites us to remember all those “who have gone before us.”
