Cemetery Ministry Annual Report January 2016
Submitted by Maria Vrame
Only one site was bought this year. St. Luke purchased this site to bury one of our Orthodox homeless from PADS. To date we have 41 sites available, 7 of which are singles. One of the singles was an unpaid for grave site that was returned. I've compared prices of other local cemeteries and also of Elmwood Cemetery in River Grove to ours. Single lots that only allow flat headstones range from $1,550 to $5,795 per site. The nicer the location of the site, the higher the price At $1,000 per site for members of St. Luke, and $1,200 per non-member, we have a beautiful location surrounded by forest preserves. The beautiful Orthodox cross that casts its shadow on our section only improves its surroundings.
