2018 - Two vacancies to be filled.
Donations for cemetery upkeep are taken every year during the Memorial Day Weekend. We also have added a Memorial Day Cemetery Upkeep envelope in the packets. Our only source of income is through donations and the sale of lots, which we keep at a minimum for active parishioners. Our expenses are mowing, lights, road maintenance and other upkeep. This summer we would like to have the funds to repair some of the older monument stones that have fallen over. Many of these no longer have family living to maintain them.
St. Columban Cemetery lot prices have been increased (Bulletin
03/11/2018). The price is now $200.00 per space. One burial per space.
CEMETERY NOTICE - St. Columban Cemetery is not a perpetual care cemetery and St. Columban Church does not maintain, finance, or contribute to the cemetery in anyway. In order to maintain the roads, mow the grass, trim the trees, and keep the cemetery maintained we must depend on donations and volunteer help. The Cemetery Board has a contract with Moore Monument Company to repair all the fallen and damaged headstones in the cemetery. We have a contract with the Chillicothe street department to repair and gravel the roads. We are trying to renovate the cemetery and need help from parishioners and family members of those who are buried in the cemetery to accomplish this task. Please help us by making a donation to the St. Columban Cemetery, drop your check in the collection basket on Sunday or leave it at the Rectory.
Cemetery flowers not in vases attached to the headstone should be removed by June 1 for mowing.
