    Why are these not available for St. Joseph’s Cemetery in Schenectady on Albany Street?

    • Avatar Jennifer Mele says:

      St. Joseph’s Cemetery in Schenectady is not one of the cemeteries we manage. It is managed by St. Joseph’s Church. You can contact them at 518-374-4466 to find out if they have a Christmas Decoration Program.

    May I ask how you install them on the stone because I drive 2 hours to go to St Patrick’s Cemetery for my grandparents and every time I put something on its stolen which I find very interesting since everyone else is still there I guess I just need to know how secure they’ll be Thank you

      Our wreaths are installed with a metal stand that is inserted into the ground so that the wreath remains in place. The blankets are placed over the grave. Christmas clean-up begins January 15th.
