This Event Has Been – Cancelled
Public celebration of the Monthly Remembrance Mass at 7:00 PM on Thursday, April 16th at the Gate of Heaven Catholic Cemetery is cancelled.
Dear Friends and Family,
In the current environment, it’s important for each of us to be much more conscious of our inter-personal contact than we may have previously been accustomed. In keeping with guidance from our local and state authorities and the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, we at Gate of Heaven Catholic Cemetery have enacted several protocols in an effort to ensure that we, and all of our visitors, are protected from potential exposure to the COVID-19 virus.
As a result of this effort, and in accordance with the bishops of Ohio’s decision to suspend temporarily all publicly celebrated Masses/liturgies, at least through the celebrations of Holy Week and Easter, we have determined to cancel the public celebration of our Monthly Remembrance Mass for the souls of the recently deceased, currently scheduled for Thursday, April 16th, at 7:00pm.
However, Father Pat Crone will offer the Mass in private, for the souls of those who were laid to rest here in February. The list of names will be provided to Father Crone and your family and friends can take comfort in knowing that the holy sacrifice of the Mass is being offered for your loved ones.
We will continue to monitor developments in the effort to limit exposure to the COVID-19 virus and its potential transmission throughout our local area, including our homes and workplace and make additional adjustments as warranted. Please continue to pray for all of those who are infected by this illness, and others, and for all of us as we manage through this crisis.
Thomas J Jordan
Director of Cemeteries at Gate of Heaven and Calvary Cemeteries
