Saints Peter & Paul Mausoleum

Cranston, Rhode Island
Saints Peter & Paul Mausoleum

With Pariseault’s 5 decade relationship with the Diocese of Providence, we were entrusted to oversee this unique Mausoleum project at the St. Ann Cemetery in Cranston, RI. The Saints Peter & Paul Mausoleum is a 22,000 sf building with two 50-ft high towers resembling the diocesan cathedral. This beautiful building provides space for 2,086 caskets and 720 cremation niches. The entire structure is a true work of art. The polished granite altar and iconic 30-foot marble-framed mosaic of the Blessed Mother and Jesus are the focal points of the chamber, but the building has numerous beautiful and meaningful aspects built into it. The bell out front was refurbished by the staff and is believed to be the second bell ever made in America, and the glass covers for the illuminated cremation niches were specially crafted in Verona, Italy. Pariseault was proud to team with the expert craftsmen from McClesky Mausoleums and designers Cemetery Design Associates to deliver this amazing space.
