A resting place among the pines

Columbarium Garden

St. Benedict Cemetery & Columbarium Garden

The historic St. Benedict Cemetery includes a stone Columbarium Garden which beautifully blends into the pine forest. Currently, there are two attractive walls completed with a capacity of sixty-eight niches. Each niche holds four standard urns.

On Memorial Day each year, the sisters host a memorial service for families and friends of loved ones interred in the cemetery and columbarium followed by a picnic dinner in the dining room. Families are encouraged to bring flowers to the service. 

The sisters would be honored to have you and your loved ones complete this life’s spiritual journey at Benet Hill Monastery. In addition to the columbarium niche, the sisters are available to help you create a memorial service that is meaningful to your family.
