What People Say About Catholic Burial Society's Funeral Home & Cremation Services in Media PA

The Catholic Burial Society accompanied and directed my sister’s funeral ceremony. Our family is forever grateful for their attentive approach and giving her the honorable service she deserved.

Marianne Jenkins


I want to thank you for good work, especially for humanity and responsiveness. In the minutes when I lost my relative, it was difficult to understand where to go first. With your help, I didn’t have to wander around the city in search of this or that funeral home service. You were prompt, compassionate, and I couldn’t be more thankful.

Steven Jason


I lost my father two weeks ago. With a feeling of loss, I was confused and didn’t know what to do. I can’t even imagine how I would have coped without the Catholic Burial Society. They organized a traditional funeral ceremony at a high level without breaking the bank which in today’s economy is a godsend.
