Assumption Cemetery is graced with a very unique feature not found in any other cemetery to our knowledge: our Stations of the Cross Columbarium Garden. There are only 21 niches still available. The price of a niche is $1400 - $2000, which gives you the right to inter the cremains of two people. If you have been thinking of purchasing a niche, please call Mr. John Bischoff at 914-736-5981, Monday to Friday for information and/or an appointment. For those of you not familiar with a Columbarium, it is a Latin word that describes a collection of niches to house urns containing cremated human remains. Usually inscribed with the person’s name and dates of birth and death, columbaria are constructed to serve as permanent resting places for our loved ones in a 'churchyard’ or landscaped terrace. May the Lord who has blessed this project now be a final resting place for many of our loved ones.
