A new aspect of a very old idea. Jesus was not buried but entombed as were most people of the ancient world. In the Catholic mausoleum the beloved Christian dead are gathered around the altar in praise of God as they did in their lifetime. Constructed of enduring stone or brick, these mausoleums are built for the ages. Visitation can be made any day of the year in comfortable and dry surroundings.
Improtance of Endowed Care
A cemetery needs a well-funded endowment to assure the future care of your family lot or burial place. The Catholic Cermeteries deposit 35% of your lot purchase to provide future care. This is the minimum we feel will assure the care of the cemetery far into the future.
To care for your lot, we seed and fertilize where needed, planted 8000 seedling trees-cut the grass 18-22 times and trim 7 or 8 times in the summer season which cost over $30 per grave. If less is invested than the 35% we feel that the cemetery will eventually fail to meet its obligations. The number of St. Louis cemeteries which is ample proof of the need for a good and solid Endowed Care Fund. The Catholic Cemeteries Care Fund is over $23,000,000-A testimony to the Archdiocese prudence and determination to keep its cemeteries in a reverential and respectful manner. This fund was begun in 1860 and continues to grow.
Garden crypts are concrete enclosures for full body entombment that are housed in beautiful buildings. They are in open air surroundings, may constructed around a central religious chapel, and are priced according to location.
A niche is a small crypt for the entombment of cremated remains.
A free-standing unit with niches for the burial of cremated remains.

Lawn Crypts are in ground burial sites. Lawn crypts offer the same traditional ground burial with the exception that each grave includes a concrete outer container that has been pre-set in the ground.
Traditional Burial is available with many plans and options. The type of memorial is determined by the purchaser at the time of selection.
