A ministry of St. Basil Orthodox Church in Wilmington, NC

Saint Basil Cemetery

“O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” 1 Corinthians 15:55

Why an Orthodox cemetery?

I look for the resurrection of the dead ...

... and the life of the world to come. These are the final words of our Christian profession of faith. Yet, modern American practices surrounding death and burial are at odds with what we believe. We are tempted to bury our loved ones in a place that exists in isolation from the worshipping community, and to put the specter of death behind us. However, a Christian burial is the first step in honoring our promise to keep alive the memory of those who have fallen asleep in Christ.

I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?

It is our honor to have been blessed with plenty of land on our parish property, and a portion of this will be dedicated to our loved ones - fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters - who have gone to their rest before us.
