Our Lady of the Rosary Cemetery serves Catholics from around
our Diocese. Read Msgr. Louis Pavlicek’s reflection.
"A Catholic cemetery is Holy Ground. With reverence we have the opportunity to visit the sacred shrine where the body of our loved one has been placed in the womb of the earth to await the final day of glory with the resurrection. It is a place of silence, prayer and reflection. We read the name and dates on the marker stone and ponder in our hearts the flame of love alive within our hearts. Our Lady of the Rosary Cemetery in Georgetown offers this kind of peaceful environment. The beauty of creation that surrounds the graves with its trees, flowers, grass, birds and many artistic markers draws us into contemplation. We are affirmed in our Catholic belief that life is transformed into new life. Some quiet time at Our Lady of the Rosary enables us to make that spiritual connection with our loved one recalling the times shared together and we carry that treasure in our hearts as we continue to be faithful to our calling"
