Due to the increased demand for cremation, St. Stephen’s Catholic Church has added a Columbarium to Calvary Cemetery in Anoka, MN.
A dedication took place Memorial Day, Monday, May 25, 2015 following 9:00 a.m. Mass at the cemetery. Fr. Joah Ellis, assisted by Fr. Kevin Manthey, blessed the new columbarium.
On March 24th, 2015 KSTP Channel 5 News reported that less than 1% of Minnesotan’s chose cremation back in the 1960’s. Now predictions show almost the entire state will be choosing cremation by the year 2030.
