The cemetery at St. James Church is a special and holy place. It has served as the burial ground for the Catholics in this area for many generations. It is a large cemetery located behind the church.

The cemetery now has a new Columbarium. There are a number of niches available to choose from overlooking the historic and quiet church grounds. The surrounding countryside offers a scenic setting to remember and visit your loved one.

Memorial urns are also available for purchase for your convenience. We offer both single and companion urns in a modest selection of cultured marble designs. For more information contact the Parish office.

Please be reminded that all stand-alone wreaths are not allowed on cemetery grounds during the period of April 1st through October 31st. Also, we ask all lot owners to remove any item which could pose a safety hazard for visitors and maintenance staff or cause damage to equipment. Prohibited items include: glassware, ceramics, metal rods/hooks, lawn ornaments, toys and stones. We appreciate your co-operation in helping to keep our cemetery safe.
