St. Philip Orthodox Cemetery was consecrated in the year of our Lord 2001, and is the only dedicated Orthodox cemetery in the Bucks-Mont area.

The cemetery offers single-depth lots consistent with the Orthodox Christian traditions in a beautiful, peaceful setting.

A Memory Garden, comprised of half-size lots, is also available for the remembrance of children lost through miscarriage.

A new Green Burial section is in development. Ask for details.

The park-like property also features a large Orthodox Cross and a central prayer area with benches, and is open from sunrise to sunset each day.

A Perpetual Care Fund provides for the ongoing care and maintenance of the cemetery grounds and roads, ensuring the continued beauty and serenity of the surroundings. (Tax deductible gifts can be made to the Cemetery for the further beautification of the property.)

Conveniently located off Route 309 in Souderton, Hilltown Township, the cemetery is easily accessible from anywhere in southeastern Pennsylvania and is only a short walk from St. Philip Orthodox Church.

A Gift for My Loved Ones

Another Gift for My Loved Ones

O relatives and close ones of the dead! Do for them what is needful for them and within your power. Use your money not for outward adornment of the coffin and grave, but in order to help those in need, in memory of your close ones who have died, for churches, where prayers for them are offered. Show mercy to the dead, take care of their souls.

- St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco
