Almighty God, You gave a humble Virgin the privilege of being mother of your Son,
And crowned her with the glory of heaven. May the prayers of the Virgin Mary
Bring us to the salvation of Christ and raise us up to eternal life.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ your Son who lives and reigns
With you and the Holy Spirit,one God, forever and ever. Amen.

We ask all families to continue removing waste material from their graves and we acknowledge the efforts that people have been making in maintaining them and keeping the cemetery tidy.
