ST. John the Baptist About Resurrection CemetEry

Resurrection Cemetery

Resurrection Cemetery was established in 1928 by Fr. Thomas Cushen and is one of the relatively few Catholic Cemeteries which allow for non-Catholic burials. The wooded setting offers a place of privacy and quiet and is conveniently located in the west suburban metro at 5555 Covington Road, Shorewood MN 55331.

Resurrection Cemetery currently consists of three sections:

Section 1 This section provides for in-ground burials and children's burial sites. These sites have allowance for above ground monuments. As this section was created in 1928 as the original cemetery, there are few remaining lots available.

Section 2 This section, opened in 1954, has a large quantity of in-ground standard burial sites available. Only flat-marker style monuments are allowable in this section. Both caskets and urns are allowed in these graves.

Section 3 This, our newest section, consists of our new Chapel Mausoleum complex, including our Chapel Mausoleum and columbarium.  A Children's Memorial Area, Meditation Trail and Stations of the Cross are in future plans. The Chapel Mausoleum consists of spaces for both casket burials (crypts) and cremation burials (niches).


Resurrection Cemetery allows flowers in flower stands to be placed, one per grave, from May 1st to October 1st in sections one and two.  Wreaths may be placed between November 1st and March 31st.  There are no floral or memorial displays permitted on the sidewalk surrounding or in the Mausoleum. If you would like to purchase a bronze vase to afix to the granite face of a niche or crypt, please email or call the Parish Office for pricing and to place an order.
