St. Anthony in Camdenton opens new cemetery, columbarium
Jack Martin was steadfast in advocating for a proper resting place for deceased members of St. Anthony parish in Camdenton.-Catholic Missourian
He died a few weeks after Father Daniel Lueckenotte blessed the new cemetery and columbarium on the grounds of St. Anthony Church this spring.
“I think he can rest in peace now,” said Fr. Lueckenotte, who served as pastor of the Camdenton parish from 2010 until June of this year.
The cemetery and the above-ground columbarium, made up of secure niches for cremated remains, are within walking distance of the church.
They are surrounded by mature trees and the glory of Creation.
