Did you know that there is a Catholic Cemetery less than 7 miles from St. Matthew? Did you know that Cemetery is named Mount Calvary Cemetery? Did you know that the Cemetery is a part of Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish near Lakeville? Did you know that in addition to regular plots, the cemetery has a new Columbarium for cremains?
I used to think that December was the busiest time of the year, but I have had second thoughts. I think May has to be with First Communion, Mother’s Day, Baccalaureate Mass for the eight grade Catholic Schools over the whole city, May Procession and crowning of Mary, Marian High School Baccalaureate and our grade school graduations and the ending of the school year, retirement parties for teachers and staff and on and on. It is a good time, but a busy time.
