The cemetery, although under township jurisdiction will not be considered as public land in the sense that it is common property and subject to the whims of the public, but is to be considered as holy ground dedicated to the peace and repose of the departed and subject to the consideration and respect of all who visit or own lots in the cemetery.
With such purpose in mind, the supervisor, or family service representative may establish temporary rules whenever in their judgment the best interest and safety of the cemetery demands it, and may cause to be ejected or arrested any person or persons whom they may deem undesirable or dangerous to the peace and repose of the cemetery.

St. John Catholic Cemetery has no interest in any funeral director, monument dealer or other merchants having business in the cemetery, but endeavors to cooperate with all for the best interests of the cemetery and the lot owners.

 

Pre-Needs

Experience shows that the selection of a cemetery location at the time of immediate need often proves unsatisfactory because the decision was hastily made.  A matter of such importance as this deserves investigation, reverent and careful deciphering, and an opportunity to make correctly, the necessary financial arrangements.
Buying cemetery property before the hour of need avoids financial embarrassment and needless worry.  It makes lighter the burden of sorrow to know that your loved ones are resting in St. John Catholic Cemetery.
Lots, memorials, interment fees, and vaults can be purchased before they are needed by making an appointment in the cemetery’s office.  The entire staff of St. John Catholic Cemetery is ready to help whenever needed.  We will gladly answer all questions and inquiries.
