“REMEMBERING OUR LOVED ONES AND HELPING THE LITTLE ONES”
Dear Friends of St. John / St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery,
Once again we are pleased to be running our Spring Flower Decoration Program for the cemetery. With your participation in this program you will not only be able to beautify the graves of your loved ones, but also assist the cemetery in a very special way.
The Holy Innocents Center in East Chicago has been established by the Carmelite Sisters to provide emergency care for infants, toddlers and small children that have been abandoned or need emergency shelter due to parental problems such as; drug addition, little or no income, abuse, etc. We have decided to answer the call of God by assisting the sisters in their mission by donating the entire (profits) from the sales of these decorations to the shelter. Through your support of the Christmas Wreath Program, a donation was made toward the daily needs of the infants and children who are placed in the loving care of the Carmelite Sisters. We sincerely thank you for your continued support.
After a 2-year hiatus resulting from the pandemic, we are plesaed to announce that we will once again be having our Memorial Day Mass, this year, with Bishop Rober J. McClory ans the main celebrant:
ANNUAL OUTDOOR MEMORIAL DAY MASS
(New 10 Acres off of 169th Street)
Monday, May 30, 2022
