THE CALVARY CEMETARY – VOLUNTEER MEMBERS STILL NEEDED
The parish is still looking for volunteers to join our cemetery committee. The parish owns two cemeteries: Calvary and Mt. Olivet. These cemeteries are very important entities of our parish. Our loved ones are buried in these cemeteries. They are important places of prayers and keeping memoirs of our family members who have gone before us. If you are interested to serve, please call the parish office at (607) 273-6121.
Update October 2022
May 2022: Our columbarium project at Calvary Cemetery continues to make great progress. Today we would like to present our initial pricing schedule. Remember, we are procuring a 96 niche columbarium. There are 4 sides to this unit, each side has 24 niches, 4 across and 6 high. Each side faces a different direction (north, east, south or west). Each single niche is 12”x1”x24” deep and will hold the cremains of 2 persons. There are 4 “double niches” that measure 12” high x 24” wide x 24” deep that will hold 4 cremation urns. The doubles are located one on each side. Our initial price is $2,000 per niche, $4,000 for a double niche. Each niche will have a bronze family nameplate included in the cost. There are no extra fees for later opening a niche, placement of the urn(s) or sealing of the niche. And $200 of each purchase goes directly into a restricted Permanent Maintenance Fund for the future maintenance of the columbarium should the cemetery be unable to properly maintain the property, or eventually close. Those who purchase early have the choice/preference of selecting the location of their niche. We expect our columbarium will be ready for burial use by this fall. Please contact our cemetery manager, Mike Moravec, at 607-272-5780 if you are interested in purchasing a niche, or if you have further questions.
To honor the memory of those who have chosen our hallowed grounds as their final resting place.
