It’s time for the fall cleanup! Please remove any spring/ summer decorations before November 1 so the cemetery looks neat going into the next season. Please note that we do not employ a scavenger service, and remember – stones, lava rocks, edgings, glass, wire holders, shepherd hooks, metal stands, pottery or candles of any kind are prohibited, and they should be removed also. If you have any questions or concerns, please call Janice Cowhey at 708-870-3000.
This Saturday and Sunday, October 14 and 15, we have the opportunity to support Connor Sterling with a door offering for his Eagle Scout project. Connor is working with our Cemetery Board and will be installing an American flag with corresponding pavers at the Christ Lutheran Cemetery. Connor will be at all services this weekend to discuss his project with the congregation.
