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.

Children's Homilies

Let the Children Come Unto Me
Let the Children Come Unto Me
Children’s Homilies on the Icons of St. Philip’s - Our holy icons can become mere old-fashioned decorations to our children unless the stories of the Bible, Church history, and the Saints become our family stories. Only then can children grow deeper in their love of God and more mature in their lives in the Church. Fr. Noah Bushelli attempts to do just this in these live recordings of homilies to children of his parish about cooperating with God's love in the company of His saints.

And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. (Acts 11:26)
