Whether you are interested in cremation or traditional burial options, niches, or headstones and memorials, we will answer any questions you may have.

People do not want to burden loved ones with planning their final burial arrangements, but often struggle with how to start the conversation.
We provide you with the education, resources and options to have that conversation, empowering your loved ones and relieving the burden, when it matters most.

2022 Memorial Day Mass

We are excited to announce that this years Annual Memorial Day Mass will be held in person at Gethsemane Cemetery. As you know, the pandemic forced us to cancel the Mass in 2020 and we provided an online Memorial Day Mass in 2021.

Gethsemane Cemetery’s annual Memorial Day Mass this year will be on Monday May 30, 2022 at 10am, and will be held rain or shine. Fellowship and refreshments will take place immediately after the Mass.

Everyone is invited to this beautiful and long-standing tradition.

New Garden Mausoleum

We have begun the process of building a new Garden Mausoleum. This Mausoleum will be a 180 crypt and 96 niche Outdoor Garden Mausoleum. Although we have not reached a point in which we can sell pre-construction, we are taking names and creating a wait list.

With only 180 crypts and 96 Niches, availability won’t last long. Once we are able to sell pre-construction, we will reach out to everyone on the list on a first come first serve basis, so the sooner you get on the list, the better the selection and availability. Call 610-929-2613 or Contact Us.

Chapel Niches & Statues

Gethsemane Cemetery is pleased to announce two new features in the Chapel of Resurrection.

St. Anne and Sacred Heart Statues have been placed in the Chapel. The bases are custom designed niche units, with four oversized niches for multiple cremation entombments.

The Sacred Heart Niches are available but there are only four, so they wont last long. Please Contact Us  for more information.

Deer

Gethsemane Cemetery has become part of the home to a sizeable herd of deer. While the deer are calling adjacent properties their permanent home, these deer are seen grazing at the cemetery on a daily basis and in all areas of the cemetery. They have been eating many of our shrubs and trees and will look for plantings all year as well.

We ask everyone to please keep an eye out for them, please do not feed them, and think about deer resistant plantings for your lots. Annuals such as Ageratum, Sweet Alyssum and Snapdragons are just a few of the sun-loving annuals that deer tend to avoid. Here is a simple Google Search Link for deer resistant Annual flowers suggestions.

Gethsemane Cemetery can help you design a beautiful granite memorial for you or your loved one.
