Manager's Letter

My Dear Friends in Christ:

The Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi tells us "O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console". The cemetery staff of St. Joseph's Catholic Church strives to live this prayer everyday as they walk with those through their journey of grief. We are available to everyone not only in times of immediate need, but throughout the bereavement process.

St. Joseph's Cemetery, with its expanded burial sites, beautiful St. Joseph and Risen Christ Chapel Mausoleums and two outside Columbaria for cremation inurnment can assist those seeking future burial needs. Preparing now allows personal choice, protection from rising costs and a sense of well-being. We recommend giving consideration and time to this matter of pre-planning with calm thoughtfulness. Pre-planning is a true gift of love to family members who may not know or understand your personal wishes.

Our cemetery office staff looks forward to assisting you in all aspects of pre-planning. We are available to you with the expertise and knowledge that will provide peace of mind to your family. We welcome the opportunity to meet with you in the near future.

God Bless,

Debra Ann Evans,
