Orthodox Christians and their spouses (even if not Orthodox Christian) are eligible for burial in St. Tikhon’s Monastery Cemetery. Even if you live outside of Pennsylvania you can still purchase plots for burial. A single plot costs $1500. Additionally, there is currently a $1500 expense to open and close the plot (this is paid at the time of burial). For headstone purchasing and headstone maintenance (including engraving dates) please contact us so we may refer you to a preferred monument dealer in our area.

The cemetery was established in the 19th century before the monastery was founded, and has grown under the monastery’s care. Among those buried here are Metropolitans Platon and Leonty, Protopresbyter Alexander Schmemann, Prince and Princess Serge Trubetskoy, and Archbishop Arseny (the founder of St. Tikhon’s Monastery and Seminary). The older section of the cemetery is located next to the monastery church and the newer section is across the road to the east.
