What’s Going on in Our Cemeteries
The latest news about our 5 beautiful cemeteries
Area Restoration and Roadwork at Calvary Cemetery
When visiting Calvary cemetery, you may notice that some roads have been repaved. Other areas are undergoing restoration, where roads have been removed to allow for new sections so families can choose to be buried in the same area where their loved ones are interred. In the life of a cemetery, roads are intended to be taken out as more earth burial graves are needed. Eventually, a cemetery will wind up with a road around its perimeter with one or two roads going through the inside of the cemetery. We thank you for your patience, your presence and continued patronage of this historic cemetery.
Students Clean Markers at Resurrection & Calvary Cemeteries
In early June juniors from Cretin-Derham Hall High School visited Resurrection and Calvary cemeteries, where they cleaned off markers of our religious sisters and brothers. We’re so grateful for the ministry they provide and their dedication to serving the memory of those who have gone before us.
