Our Lady of the Rosary Cemetery & Prayer Gardens
Offering Summer Monument Sale
Dear Patrons and Friends of Our Lady!
This summer is an excellent time to proceed with your family monument, and take advantage of our first Summer Monument Sale! During June, July and August, we are offering a 10% discount on custom design orders, and a 20% discount on our Ready Monuments (which can be seen in the Ready Monument Garden display area on the bottom left of the hillside.)
Nicholas Brumder, co-founder and Monument Designer of Our Lady, will be in Georgetown from July until early August, and if available would be delighted to meet with you and Carolyn King, Monument Administrator for Our Lady. Please call Carolyn at the office (512-863-8411) to set an appointment and to begin the process of ordering a monument.
To help prepare for your meeting, please consider possibilities for a symbol of faith on your monument, and your budget. A walk through the cemetery is an excellent idea to see the size and color stones of your preference. Be sure to visit the Ready Monument Garden on site to see the good selection in a variety of colors and designs. All ready monuments can be embellished with etched, bronze or mosaic symbols of faith.
Our Lady of the Rosary is proud to announce that Nick’s amazing skills as a Designer has landed him the only WW1 Sculpture commission in New Zealand, in honor of the New Zealand Tunnelers on the Western Front.
This major commission will be produced at his new shop, Waihi Metal Studio, with dedication and fanfare in March 2016. Well done, Nick!
Another Event at Our Lady Not Dampened by Wet Weather
Memorial Day Activities
Jennifer Mireless and numerous members of the home-school girland boy scout groups braved the inclement weather on Memorial Day to honor interred Veterans at Our Lady. Jennifer welcomed the scouts and their family members to the Memorial Day activity and thanked everyone for coming on such a dreary and rainy day.
Jennifer then asked the Scout Color Guard to raise the flags and led the attendees in prayer to open the ceremony.
Scouts were given small flags to place on the graves of those who selflessly served our country. A short prayer was said for each veteran after the flag was placed on the grave.
The normal “pizza party” held in “the grotto” area near the pond had to be moved indoors this year since Our Lady was being blessed with a much needed rain. The family socializing-and- appreciation lunch was moved to Our Lady’s office on the campus of St. Helen’s church. The rooms of Our Lady were filled with children’s chatter and laughter, adult conversation and the aroma of cheese and pepperoni.
