Summary of Costs and Fees

Effective March 1, 2009


Burial at St. Joseph or St. Mary cemeteries

Burial in our parish cemeteries requires the purchase of a grave and the payment of the interment fee. The purchase of a grave is handled directly through our parish office either in advance or at the time of need. 

The interment fee is typically included in the bill of services provided by a professional funeral director at the time of death, or as part of pre-planning of a funeral.


If you are interested in the purchase of a gravesite in one of our parish cemeteries, please call our parish office any weekday, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., to set up an appointment to discuss your particular personal and family needs.


Burial Policy


Our parish cemetery policy limits the number of burials in an individual grave to a maximum of two, whether burying bodily or cremated remains. Also, all caskets and cremation urns must be buried within a vault. Finally, all interments at both of our parish cemeteries must be conducted by our cemetery personnel.


Foundations for memorial monuments

To assure the quality and consistent appearance of our parish cemeteries, we will handle the pouring of all foundations for memorial monuments. Therefore, the monument company will need to make arrangements with the parish office before a memorial monument is placed at a grave site. All local monument companies are aware of this requirement.
