Green Burials

The Catholic Cemeteries Association is pleased to announce that the Saint Francis of Assisi Green Burial Section, located in Holy Savior Catholic Cemetery in Pine/ Richland Townships is open. Demand for this new form of burial has increased somewhat in recent years and has prompted The Catholic Cemeteries Association to establish its first Green Burial location.

The new section will be named Saint Francis of Assisi Green Burial Section, in honor of the saint’s love of creation and all natural things.

A beautiful pavilion has been designed which will be used for Committal Services for those being interred in the Saint Francis of Assisi section. The structure will accommodate approximately 50 people for services and also serve as a shelter for visitation.

The Green Burial Section follows the same visitation schedule permitted for the rest of the cemetery property — dawn to dusk, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. If you are interested in exploring this type of burial option please contact Holy Savior Cemetery at 724-625-3822.
