So just what is Providence Community Cemetery?

Providence Community Cemetery is the latest outreach ministry of the Sisters of Providence. After two years of research, consultation and planning, Providence Community Cemetery became a reality in May 2020.

The newly constructed Good Shepherd Chapel stands on a small knoll across from the Sisters of Providence Cemetery. The chapel will serve as a gathering space where those interring loved ones may choose to hold a service. So far, the adjacent columbarium has 56 of 192 niches reserved for interment of cremains.

The criteria for cremains burial is “long-standing relationships with the Sisters of Providence.” These relationships are well represented in the current niche reservations. Relatives, former members, Providence Associates, benefactors, alumnae/i of SP schools and staff members have chosen the sacred space of the Woods for their final resting place.

We invite you to find more information about Providence Community Cemetery at CommunityCemetery.SistersofProvidence.org. Or contact Sister Ann Casper at 812-535-2828 or acasper@spsmw.org.
