FEAST of the ASSUMPTION

Columbaria are granite burial units for the internment of the Ashes of a Loved One.  St. Martin of Tours Cemetery has erected two brand new Columbaria with 96 niches.  The parish purchased these first of many units through the generous donations made to the Diocesan Heart of the Shepherd Campaign.  

On MONDAY, AUGUST 15, the Solemn Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven, it is fitting that we will hold a SUNSET ROSARY WALK at 8:00pm in our cemetery.  During the Rosary we will consecrate these two columbaria for the sole purpose of the burial of the faithful departed.

Please join us for this special occasion. 

Watch for further announcements.  Once the parish office has determined purchase costs, burial fees, and other cemetery policies, we will then be ready to accept requests - hopefully by late September.

St. Martin Rosary Campaign

  JOIN FELLOW PARISHIONERS on Monday, August 15, for a SUNSET ROSARY WALK in our parish cemetery at 8:00pm.  This is the Feast of Mary's Assumption into Heaven.  We will consecrate the brand new burial units for Ashes during the Rosary.

Thank you for asking the intercession of the Blessed Mother for our families, parish, country, and Ukraine.

 If you wish, continue to offer a rosary for the welfare of others, the intentions of our Holy Father Francis, and for peace in our world.
