Urns

Choosing a peaceful, final resting place is an important decision for families who elect cremation. While the Church has recognized cremation as a suitable form of disposition, the burial or entombment of cremated remains on consecrated grounds is also favored.

Our Family Service Counselors can suggest a meaningful final resting place for families who prefer cremation -- from glass or concealed-front mausoleum niches, new columbarium memorial to ground burial of cremated remains.

In each case, the choice of a cremation urn is required. We provide a variety of selections. Many can be personalized with engraving to create a permanent memorial.

Metal Urns

Metal urns are designed to be among the sturdiest of all urns. There are many different styles and designs in metal urns, but they all maintain the traditional, classic look.

Granite Urns

Available in sheet bronze, spun bronze and cast bronze, few urns on the market can match the quality of this medium. The use of bronze is recognized as the standard of permanence and reverence in the funeral industry. 

New models are appearing using the lost wax process and forged pieces.  These can be of museum quality in their design and in their finish.  The bronze urn is fast becoming known as the ultimate tribute.

Ceramic Urns

Ceramic or Porcelain urns are becoming more and more popular because of their relatively low cost. The smooth finish that can be produced on this material can allow very beautiful and stunning works of art. Although somewhat fragile by nature, these urns can provide a practical and affordable option for families.

Cloisonne Urns

Cloisonne is the art of applying enamel of all colors to the surface of a copper or bronze object, which is then fired to become a bright and colorful work of art. This technique reached its' perfection as a result of the efforts of Chinese artisans. Chinese cloisonne there upon became the standard by which to measure the quality and appraise the beauty of cloisonne world wide. This ranks as one of China's major contributions to the world's fine arts.
