Gate of Heaven Cemetery boasts three beautiful stained glass windows that came from the now closed Church of the Assumption in Walnut Hills. The windows are from the Franz Mayer & Company and Zettler Studios from Munich, Germany. The windows are the namesakes for the three chapels, Virgin Mary, St. Joseph and St. Peter.

Lord, support us all the day long,
until the shadows lengthen and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed
and the fever of life is over
and our work is done.
Then in thy mercy grant us a safe lodging
and a holy rest,
and peace at the last.
Amen.— St. John Henry Newman

“Give all your worries to Him, because He cares for you. “
1 Peter 5:7
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”
“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”
“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”
“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”
