St. Mary Catholic Cemetery, Delaware, OH • Christmas Wreath Order Form 2017

 As we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus, we prepare for His coming again – We remember that His Church includes members who have gone before us as we honor our departed brothers and sisters.

We are pleased to offer, this year, during the Advent and Christmas season, natural wreaths – 22-24” wide, which will be placed prayerfully and lovingly in remembrance of your Loved Ones who have gone before us.

All wreaths are Classic Noble Fir Mixed Wreaths- A beautiful combination of fragrant and freshly cut Pacific Northwest Greens and cones. Weatherproof Bow included. Wreath is 22″-24″ wide.  Wreaths will be placed at the headstone of your loved one(s) in St. Mary Cemetery the first week of December and will be removed the first week of January.

Wreaths are available for those buried in other cemeteries or for holiday decoration as well.  We will be pleased to call you to let you know when the wreaths may be picked up on the campus of St. Mary.

The cost is $25 per wreath and we ask that you place your order no later than November 20th.
