Current burial options available include:

Traditional gravesites

St. John Cemetery offers a variety of options for in-ground burial.  A ‘single’ gravesite for upright memorialization can accommodate three (3) traditional burials, and while concrete or metal vaults/liners can be used, they are not required.  Other sites permitting a flat memorial require concrete liners, and can accommodate two (2) traditional burials.

Please note that the purchase of a gravesite includes Endowed Care which provides for the future care of the site without the need for any future care charges.  Such care includes seeding, trimming and mowing of the gravesite.  [Please note that monuments and plantings are the responsibility of plot holders.]

Above-ground community mausoleums

A wide range of options for entombment are available in our beautifully-appointed community mausoleums.  Many families have expressed their preference for above-ground mausoleum entombment, and our community mausoleums provide a reverent setting with marble crypt fronts, stained glass, and a wide array of sacred artwork and statuary.

Single, companion and family crypts are available, as well as niches for those who have chosen cremation.  Many have found that the cost of above-ground entombment in a community mausoleum can be comparable to a traditional gravesite when considering the cost of optional concrete liners/vaults, and arranging for an upright granite memorial.

Our current community mausoleum offerings include:

Christ The Redeemer

Resurrection Mausoleum

St. John's Cloister

 Ave Maria Garden
