To accommodate the current Catholic church discipline and practice, Ascension Cemetery offers a variety of options for the respectful disposition and memorialization of cremated remains. The division or scattering of cremated remains is not consonant with Catholic discipline or practice.
Above-ground inurnment of cremated remains takes place in niches that are located within Holy Family Garden Columbarium. Niches are available at different levels (heights) and with different shutters (exterior covers). Availability is as follows:
All niches are made to hold a maximum of two urns. The price range is from $2,600 to $3,000 depending on location. Please contact the Ascension Cemetery office at (845) 352-7220 to schedule an appointment.
Identification is included in the cost of the niche spaces, but religious enhancements are not included.
Niche prices do not include opening/sealing of the space.
The opening fees for weekday and Saturday inurnment are $600 and $800.
Enhancements such as cameo pictures and patriotic/religious emblems may be attached to marble and granite shutters. A selection of emblems and cameos is available at the cemetery office and these items must be purchased through the cemetery to preserve the uniform appearance of the mausoleum. No enhancements may be attached to niche fronts.
Please refer to the fee schedule for other services and related fees.
