Lawn Crypts – Single and Double
Preset vaults in designated sections. Singles are side-by-side. Doubles have upper and lower compartments, so two people can share the same vault. The committal service is the same as for regular ground burial.
Burial Vaults and Cremation Urn-Vaults
All in-ground burials require an outer container for the casket or cremated remains. A variety of choices are available at cemetery offices.
A portion of all payments received for goods and services is set aside for perpetual care of our cemeteries.
All caskets include an upholstered interior, pillow, mattress, and adjustable bed. Handles and a clear lacquer finish are also standard features. A cross is optional. Each Trappist Casket meets or exceeds industry standards for strength and size, and all models fit within a standard size burial vault.
Memorials and Markers
Vases and floral arrangements are available for annual contract in mausoleums. Also, seasonal outdoor arrangements are offered for special holidays.
In-ground burials that have no previous marker in place are provided a temporary marker for 30 days. If a permanent marker is bought and paid for through Catholic Cemeteries, the temporary marker will remain in place until the permanent marker is set in ground.
A prescribed donation is required for partial cost. Location is determined by space available. You can then purchase online.
Complete engraving or additions to existing markers or monuments can be arranged through our office.
All burial services have the option of having the committal service in a mausoleum chapel, if the family prefers.
Traditional for in-ground burial, the services include tent, chairs, and grass rug draping.
Every three months, Mass is said at one of our two mausoleum chapels on a rotation basis. Families of those deceased since the last Mass receive an invitation to attend. An open invitation is extended through an announcement in The Leaven.
