St. Agnes Historic Tour with Lunch

Date

Time

11am

Catholic Rural Cemeteries such as our lovely St. Agnes Cemetery, Menands founded in 1867 played a very important role in the way the remains of the departed were respected throughout the decades.  They still are important and uphold traditions intrinsic to the Catholic mission to treat the living and the dead with love and compassion.  Nothing in the basic sentiment of St. Agnes Cemetery’s original charter has changed. It was designed to be a place of peace with orderly, well maintained grounds in perpetuity.  The tranquil beauty of these sacred grounds draws thousands of visitors annually. I am offering a short informational tour of the historic sections in St. Agnes Cemetery to lend attendees insight on why rural cemeteries were established and why monuments look the way they do. If you would like to join me on August 30 at 11 AM  for a tour ending with a lovely luncheon at noon on cemetery grounds overlooking the Hudson River Valley contact me for ticket purchase by August 27. Space is limited! Ticket price is $25 and includes lunch.  

And don’t forget to check our website for details on the September 19th Menand House Garden Party!
