Lent is a time of grace!
As Catholic Christians we believe that when Jesus died on the cross for us, he opened the gates of heaven that we may enter into eternal salvation when we die on this Earth. Lent is a time to walk in Jesus' footsteps for the 40 days prior to his public ministry and to celebrate his passion, death on the cross and resurrection for us. It is a time to recognize those that have gone before us following the example of Jesus Christ Our Lord. To commemorate this time of Lent and Jesus' entrance into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, we are offering Palm Crosses for sale for your loved one's grave.
Palm crosses can be purchased through our secure website by clicking on the link below. Questions regarding grave locations or to place your order over the phone, please call 732-561-2591.
The palm crosses will be placed on your loved one's grave by our cemetery staff beginning the week of March 2nd on a first come, first served basis. They will remain on the grave until April 15th.
