Back from the Dead Cemetery Walks take place every 10 minutes, with the first at 6:30 pm and the last beginning at 8:30 pm. Walks are available October 18-20 and 26-28.
This Cemetery Walk is an engaging and inspiring dramatization in which martyrs, saints and others “come to life”, telling their stories of faith, hope and charity. It takes place in St. Joseph’s Cemetery at The National Shrine of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, which holds the walk in partnership with Mount Saint Mary’s Campus Ministry Office. The walk is recommended for ages 14 and up. Groups are welcome; reservations are appreciated for groups of 10 or more. The event is held rain or shine; please dress for an evening outdoors. The walk lasts for about 30-40 minutes.
