Christmas Decoration Program

Posted on October 15, 2022 by Jennifer Mele under All Cemeteries, Cemetery Clean-up Announcements, Clean ups and Decorations, Special Event

Albany Diocesan Cemeteries generally offers a Christmas Decoration program with blankets, wreaths and *vases (*in some mausoleums) available for purchase to honor your loved ones interred within our 20 Albany Diocesan Cemeteries. We even do the decorating for you! This program offers a convenient way to honor your loved ones, especially if you live far away!

Thank you to all who placed orders for the 2022 season, and a big thanks to those who donated a little extra to help decorate veteran graves!
