About the Cemetery
St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church of Merrillville, Indiana has been actively working through a multi-phase process to construct one of the newest Orthodox Cemeteries in the Midwest.
St. Sava has served the Serbian Orthodox community in Northwest Indiana for more than 100 years and seeks to continue serving in the Orthodox tradition with the establishment of a new cemetery, open to all those of faith in the Orthodox community regardless of their respective ethnic distinctions throughout Northwest Indiana, the Chicago, Illinois area, and beyond.
It will be one of the few Orthodox Cemeteries located on Orthodox Church property in the region and will focus on maintaining the Orthodox Traditions. More details and updates about the Cemetery will be announced throughout 2017 as new milestones are achieved.
Construction Phase 1 Begins
Final engineering and planning phases concluded and construction is actively taking place as of Spring March 2017. Sales timelines are beginning to take shape. Though an official sales date has not yet been set for purchasing plots within the Cemetery information will be available at this site in Spring 2017.
