LINCOLN (SNR) – Calvary Cemetery in Lincoln is in the process of beautifying the Infant of Prague/“Babyland” area dedicated to stillborn and miscarried babies.
Many parents come daily to the cemetery to pray for and remember their little ones. Some bring siblings for a visit and to play on the glider swing that was recently donated.
“We believe that beautifying this section of our cemetery will help give comfort and peace to these families,” said counselor Kathi Woody.
Recently, statues of the Infant of Prague, whose title the cemetery is giving this section, and a small praying angel have been donated, which will add a sense of holy reverence to the area.
Other plans include placement of white picket fence panels surrounding this area to enhance its appearance and to mark it as a special place for the “holy innocents.” A donation of $150 will provide one of the fence panels.
There will also be a pathway of engraved memorial 12”x12” granite stepstones, and 6”x12” engraved granite border bricks, which may be donated in memory of a loved one. The granite stepstones will surround newly-donated statues and the fence line, and can be provided with a donation of $500 each. The donation for the engraved granite border bricks is $250 each.
