Guardian Angel Cemetery
Guardian Angel in Rochester, Michigan, reflects Mt. Elliott’s growing commitment to the greater Detroit community.
The Association’s trademark landscaping and dignified entryway welcome visitors to its park-like setting. Just beyond the entry is a monumental bronze sculpture of the namesake guardian angel. It’s interesting to note that the artist’s model for this imposing sculpture was blessed by Pope John Paul II in 2004. Guardian Angel’s expansive grounds are enhanced with flowers and trees throughout.
For those who prefer an alternative to ground burial, Guardian Angel Cemetery offers one of the finest indoor, climate-controlled mausoleums that can be found anywhere. Angel of Peace Mausoleum balances a contemporary feel with a timeless architecture style. The building’s interior creates a majestic sense of space, enhanced by rich marble finishes and a colossal bronze sculpture. Natural light streams through a skylight that runs continuously over the main corridor on the second level.
Other special sections at Guardian Angel include the Cremation and Mediation Garden, which includes the ability to select or customize a cremation memorial, and the Orthodox Section, which honors and traditions of those individuals and families of Orthodox faith, such as all graves facing east.
Guardian Angel Cemetery hosts numerous community events throughout the year. These include Memorial Day, Cinema in the Cemetery benefiting Raising Rochester, Christmas events, Wreaths Across America, a Children’s Remembrance event, preplanning seminars and other educational programs.
We believe that offering these programs are important responsibilities and reflect our unwavering commitment to the families we serve… to honor the memory of your loved ones, to protect family heritage and to help you bring closure in a place that will be forever beautiful.
