Families at All Saints Cemetery should be aware that deer are roaming the grounds and eating some of the fresh flowers being placed in vases. As a solution to this problem the cemetery will be selling limited amounts of artificial arrangements for $19.95 – cash and carry. Arrangements should be in stock on or about April 10th.  Please check with the office if you have any questions.

 

Be aware that there has been a theft of bronze vases from memorials located at Cathedral and All Saints Cemeteries. We are presently compiling a list of those affected. We will be offering two options. Families can pay 1/3 of the  cost for a replacement vase and  Catholic Cemeteries, Inc will cover the other 2/3 of the cost. The second option is to authorize a cap that is placed over the vase hole in a memorial. The thefts are being investigated by local law enforcement authorities. Those stealing these vases are committing a felony and if caught will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Those scrap dealers who may be accepting these stolen vases are also committing a felony.

 To report a stolen vase please call Cathedral Cemetery at 656 – 323 or All Saints Cemetery at 737 – 2524
