Essential Piece Invitation
"Into your hands, Father of mercies, we commend our brother/sister in the sure and certain hope that, together with all who have died in Christ, he/she will rise with him on the last day."
It would be our honor and privilege to help you at this time of great sorrow. It will be our hope that in some way we are able to make this difficult time easier for you. It is our desire to serve you in every way as you come to this tender moment. This is an important time of grief, tears, faith, celebration and a reminder of our own journey to the gift of eternal life. Our goal is to help families "celebrate the life" of their loved ones and help say goodbyes.

St. John's parish serves a luncheon following funeral services. The lunch is served in the Atrium and is prepared by parishioners. Parishioners are contacted to donate salads and bars.
As a part of the church's hope and promise of resurrection and new life through Jesus Christ, as well as our believe in the dignity of the human person called in Baptism as children of God, there is the long practice of the parish cemetery. William Byrne donated the land for St. John's Cemetery in 1854. This property is located on Judicial Road, just south of Williams Drive in Burnsville where the first parish church stood. For burial in the parish cemetery it is required to be a parishioner of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church or former registered parishioner.
For more information about Cemetery Rules and Regulations relating to decorations, ownership of interment rights, monuments and markers, as well as perpetual care fund, contact the parish office at 952.890.9465.
