All decorations are to be removed from the cemetery by October 15th. The cemetery is unable to store any decorations that are not removed, and will remove and dispose of them if left beyond October 15. Because beetles and other damaging insects lay their eggs in the soil, remove the soil from the pot when you are removing your decorations. If you purchased flowers from the cemetery this year, cemetery staff discards your flowers and the soil for you.
November 1, winter decorations may be placed in your urn or shepherd hook. You may purchase an urn/stand or shepherd hook from the cemetery and we will install it in concrete. Call the cemetery at 507-452-2769 if interested in either of these items. Only shepherd hooks and flower stands purchased through the cemetery are allowed. Christmas trees, garlands, and lights are not allowed in the cemetery.
St. Mary’s Cemetery offers fresh evergreen decorations for the Christmas season. Watch for future flyers at your parish or call the office for more information. If you would like the information on this program emailed to you, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, (or call us at 507-452-2769) and we will send you a form to complete.
