Due to the increased demand for cremation, St. Stephen’s Catholic Church added a Columbarium to Calvary Cemetery in Anoka, MN.
Calvary Cemetery’s columbarium, constructed of granite, offers options for a single niche (for one urn containing the cremated remains of one person) or a double niche (for two urns, each containing the cremated remains of a person).
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.
Projections indicate that more than 70 percent of Minnesotans will be choosing cremation by the year 2030.
Purchase a single or double niche now at 2015 pricing before the prices go up June 1, 2019.
