Catholic Cemeteries honors order of nuns with granite cross
Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann will preside at a special ceremony at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 2, to bless and dedicate a cross in a section of Mt. Calvary Cemetery newly designated for the Sisters, Servants of Mary.
Mt. Calvary is at 38th Street and State Avenue, Kansas City, Kan.
The 8-foot granite cross rises above the section of the cemetery recently donated to the Sisters by Catholic Cemeteries. It is identical to the cross in another section of the cemetery donated to the Sisters, Servants in 1936. The newly designated section is near the Our Lady of Guadalupe Memorial on the west side of the cemetery.
The Sisters, Servants of Mary have served the people of the Kansas City metropolitan area since 1917 and continue their mission of caring for the sick and dying in their homes at no cost to individuals or their families. Their Kansas City, Kan., convent is the provincial house for the United States and Mexico.
