An ornament in remembrance of Archbishop Thomas C. Kelly hangs on the “tree of remembrance” at Calvary Cemetery.

The tree is near the main gate of Calvary, 1600 Newburg Road. People are invited to place ornaments in memory of loved ones.

Visitors are asked to stop by the cemetery office first, for assistance. The office will also provide a personalized complimentary ornament or visitors may bring their own.

The tree will remain lit until the feast of the Epiphany, Jan. 6. Ornaments that remain after Jan. 6 will be collected and held in the office until Jan. 31.
