Above Ground Burials

Crypts/Niches are available for above ground burial either in interior or exterior settings. Throughout the Church's history, mausoleum-style entombment has been utilized. Early Christians were buried in the catacombs. Today, Community Garden Crypt facilities make above ground burial affordable for persons who have a preference for this type of burial.
