The Catholic cemetery is the final resting place for the members of our Faith Community on our Journey to God. It is the gate of heaven. Burial in the consecrated ground of the Catholic cemetery allows you to share your faith values with future generations of your family. This legacy of faith is your gift to them. Catholic cemeteries are signs of hope that are places of prayer. They witness our faith in the Lord Jesus and the hope we share in his resurrection.
Please join us as we celebrate with Faye McClain, retiring Superintendent of Gethsemane Catholic Cemetery, honoring her more than 21 years of service to Catholic parishioners.
An Open House will be held in her honor.
