On the Cemetery Walk, a guide leads you through the dark by candlelight, saints and martyrs come to life and reflect upon the “Last Things”: death, judgment, heaven and hell. Meet Saint John de Brebeuf, who will describe what the North American martyrs endured for the sake of Christ. Or Blessed Stanley Rother, who will share what inspired him to sacrifice his life for the people of his parish. You’ll also meet Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, who reveals how she found Jesus in the midst of suffering. Through these encounters with saints, and martyrs, you’ll discover what it means to be truly alive, both now and in the life to come.
This faith-filled walk is ideal for youth groups and families with older children (14+). Times: 6:30-8:30pm, with a walk beginning every 10-15 minutes
