2021 - Lighting of Luminaries


Thank you everyone that helped place luminaries & then lit each candle

at each gravesite on Sunday November 7th

as our way to Celebrate "All Souls Day."

A beautiful way to remember our loved ones

that have left this earth and are now celebrating

Eternal Life with our Lord.
