St. Luke’s is one of the oldest cemeteries in the area and is the final resting place for many of Hastings’ earliest settlers, indigenous residents, and many generations of Episcopalians. Church membership and Episcopal affiliation are not required to purchase burial plots, although active members do receive a discounted purchase price.
The cemetery is cared for by local volunteers who tend to the grounds during the growing season. They are also working on a comprehensive plan for landscape upgrades. St. Luke’s Episcopal Church manages the perpetual fund and upkeep. It is the practice of the faith community to name a few of those buried during our Sunday worship services so that each year, every person buried in St. Luke's cemetery is specifically remembered in prayer.
Each plot may hold either one full burial, or two urns.
Current purchase prices as of July 2018
$600 for a full burial plot
$350 for the Ash garden (one urn or direct internment of ashes)
Please contact the Parish Office with a minimum 48 hours notice prior to burial.
