As a Catholic Cemetery, Calvary is committed to the corporal work of mercy of the respectful burial of the dead. Many options are available ranging from a burial space with a monument or marker, natural burial, placement in a niche or personal columbarium, or private estate mausoleums. In 2016, the Vatican, in the document “To Rise with Christ,” required the burial of cremated human remains in a cemetery, or sacred space. Calvary Cemetery, as part of our Catholic mission, offers many different options for the respectful, and permanent, inurnment of your loved one. Among the options are:
- Placement in a Niche. We have many options for niches throughout our cemetery grounds, including glass front niches in our new “Garden of Peace” Columbarium.
- Burial in our traditional marker and monument graves.
- Natural Burial in our St. Kateri Preserve for Natural Burial, an 8 acre preserve dedicated to nature and the environment.
- Placement on a Family & Feature Lot utilizing a private, family mausoleum.
All of these forms of final disposition are personal choices that demonstrate the esteem, love and respect with which we hold our loved ones, family and friends. Our staff at Calvary would be honored to help you to decide which manner is most appropriate for you and your family.
