Saturday, June 20, the columbarium at Calvary Cemetery in Morris will be dedicated and blessed.
The ceremony begins at 10 a-m at the cross with the pastor of the Assumption Church in Morris, Father Todd Schneider, officiating.
At the end of the blessing, the joyful mysteries of the rosary will be prayed for all those who blessed the Assumption Parish since it was Established in 1876, as well as prayers for all those buried in Calvary Cemetery.
This blessing is the first of many events scheduled this year as the parish observes one hundred fifty years since the first Mass was said in Morris. The columbarium is designed to hold cremated remains.
The public is invited to the 10 a-m event this Saturday..
