  • Section One: Located on the south side of the entry road, is currently open for full body and cremation burial with alternating rows for flat markers and upright monuments. Typically, upright monuments require two adjoining graves. Some single graves in the upright monument rows are available for smaller upright monuments. Contact the cemetery committee for these selections. Additional sections of the cemetery will open as needed.
  • Section Two: Located on the north side of the entry road, following the curve of the Meditation Garden, is the Miscarried Baby section providing a special place of healing for families of a miscarried baby.
  • Pregnancy Loss Services: Because we believe that life begins at conception, St. Patrick Cemetery offers services to parents who have experienced the loss of a child during pregnancy. The support of our clergy and cemetery committee, along with internment in our special Miscarried Baby section, a casket and concrete vault are provided at no cost. The family has the option to have their child’s name inscribed on the communal monument. For further information or assistance with our Pregnancy Loss Ministry, please contact Jeremy Weakly, Pastoral Care & Outreach Coordinator at: jweakly@st-patricks.org, 763-753-2011. Please visit our PLM webpage here: Pregnancy Loss Ministry
  • Section Three: The Infant Baby section just east of the Meditation Garden and the Pregnancy Loss section. These two sections are anchored on the east by the Children’s Memorial of Swan mist granite which was donated by members of St. Patrick.
