Holy Cross Cemetery & Mausoleum Welcomes Youth Program, Summer in the City

During the week of August 14th, high school students performed volunteer worked at Holy Cross Cemetery & Mausoleum in Mays Landing as part of the Diocesan Summer in the City Youth Program.  Each day the youth, greeted by cemetery staff members, began with a prayer blessing the cemetery.  The youth gained a better understanding of performing the Corporal Work of Mercy of burying the dead by caring and maintaining the cemetery grounds. 

Their work included landscaping a new area at the cemetery office as well as cleaning the mausoleum, painting, and weeding and mulching several flower beds. 

Their week came to a close with Reverend J. King celebrating mass in the chapel mausoleum.
