New Sign for Cemetery
I’m happy to announce that we are planning to buy a new sign for our cemetery, Calvary Cemetery. This sign will have the cemetery name, the map of the burial plots and names, and also additional information about the cemetery.
The old display case we had with the cemetery map was made of wood, and has been deteriorating over the years. It badly needed to be replaced. We decided that a more permanent sign, made of aluminum and plexiglass would be a good long-term investment, as well as look very nice.
The new sign will cost approximately $8,000. We have already begun collecting donations, and have raised about $2,000.
To complete this project, we (the Cemetery Committee) are reaching out not only to our parishioners, but also to any family or friends who have someone buried in our cemetery, and inviting you to consider making a donation toward the purchase of the new sign.
If we collect more than is needed to purchase the sign, additional donations will be used exclusively for cemetery maintenance.
We have a very beautiful cemetery that I am very proud of, and I am excited at this opportunity to purchase a new sign that will last for a very long time.
You are in my daily prayers.
God bless you,
