Saint Signage Sponsorship Program
The lawn sections at Mt. Calvary and Gethsemani were historically named using letters and numbers. The naming practices were changed in the early 90’s, and new sections in our Catholic Cemeteries were more aptly named after saints. The use of saint names is more personal and memorable for the families served by your Catholic Cemeteries.
Your Catholic Cemeteries are renaming each of our older sections after a saint and developing signage identifying each section. We are hoping that as many as 40 granite signs will be erected on our grounds.
To help offset the costs, we have developed a unique way for you to contribute. While any level of donation is greatly appreciated, a contribution of $750 brings full sponsorship of a section sign and we will add an inscription “In Memory of ” your loved on the back side of the sign. Since we are a non-profit organization, these donations may be tax deductible.
If you are interested, please contact the appropriate office, Mt. Calvary Catholic Cemetery 503-292-6621 or Gethsemani Catholic Cemetery 503-659-1350.
Please keep in mind that there are a limited number of signs in each section so the opportunity to sponsor a sign will be on a first–come, first-served basis.
