Expansion / Columbaria
St. Michael’s Cemetery is about to embark upon a major expansion plan! For years, a variety of volunteers from the churches of St. Michael, St. Mary and St. Charles have worked on a plan to expand into a vacant parcel of the cemetery on the southeast corner. That plan is finally coming to fulfillment. A good deal of the credit for this beautiful addition to the cemetery goes to prior members of the Cemetery Committee, who worked to “set the stage” for what is now being created.
The cemetery expansion will initially include two columbaria with a total of 280 niches for those who prefer cremation to a traditional in-ground burial. Beginning in 2022, there will also be grave plots for in-ground placement of cremation urns as well as traditional in-ground burial plots.
