St. Xenia Burial Ministry


St. Xenia Burial Ministry now has preparation booklets for anyone who purchases a plot through us for Cloverdale Cemetery. Included are preparation guidelines, financial documents, comparison costs for local Funeral Homes, wills and testaments, etc. Once you purchase a plot through St. Xenia you will receive a burial plot certificate, a copy will be given to Cloverdale Cemetery, and you will be given the preparation booklet. Costs for a single burial plot is $2200.00. St. Seraphim of Sarov has purchased 20 plots available to our members, including 2 plots that are adjacent to plots reserved for someone with a spouse who is non orthodox. (The non-Orthodox space is sold at Cloverdale's cost at the time of purchase.) Monthly payments are available. Please text Kh. Michelle Fenn if you are interested in purchasing a plot to set up a time to meet. During the meeting we will discuss the location of the burial plot, payment arrangements, and certificate if paid in full.

Although the plots are located in Cloverdale Cemetery, it is not required that one use the Mortuary services of Cloverdale Funeral Home.  The scope of the ministrations of the society, however, may be impacted by the policies of outside Funeral Homes.
