Natural Green Burial
Looking for an alternative to cremation, let us show you the Section of St. Kateri Tekakwitha dedicated to a natural or green burial.
Our natural burial section is different from our other sections. There are no manicured lawns and the majority of the section is covered in native green grasses, wild flowers and stands of trees. Paths will wander through the section to allow for visitation and memorialization is limited to an inscribed field stone, as no manufactured memorials will be permitted. Metal caskets and burial vaults are also not permitted. The body may be wrapped in a shroud or placed in a completely biodegradable casket. Our hope is to provide burial while reducing the environmental impact to the greatest degree possible. Due to the energy use and possible environmental concerns of the cremation process, cremated remains will not be permitted in the section of St. Kateri Tekakwitha.
