Registration is Now Open for Route20Catholic Family Catechesis & Sacramental Prep! In an effort to make Family Catechesis more accessible, we decided to host the K-8 program on two campuses on two different Sundays each month. That way, children from all four parishes can register for our PCA Route20Catholic Family Catechesis program, and then attend any meeting on any campus on any month, and receive the same Faith Formation with the same curriculum from the same team. For example, Family Catechesis will typically take place every second Sunday of the month at 10am in Waterville immediately following the 9am Sunday Mass, and Family Catechesis will typically take place every third Sunday of the month at 10am in Hamilton immediately before the 11am Sunday Mass. Families will have access to two sessions on both the East side and the West side of the PCA each month, and they are welcome to participate in the session that is most convenient for them on any given month. We will also be adapting the Family Catechesis model this year by reintroducing break out sessions by age, so children can be with their peers and engage in age appropriate content.

St. Joseph’s Cemetery

St. Joseph’s Cemetery is located on the east side of Route 12B, in Madison County, about half a mile between the village line and Route 20, a distance of about one mile.  The Cemetery was organized in 1916 when the Rev. Henry Hyland was Pastor.  Originally farm land, this parcel was given to the Parish by William Jordan on August 31, 1917.  Two stone pillars and iron gateway were installed at the entrance of the Cemetery but due to deterioration they were removed about 1995.  A short-looped blacktop driveway was installed about 1965, and an extended blacktop road was done in 1976.  In 1972, spruce trees from Ed Quackenbush, and in 1973, sugar maples from Ralph Sawyer were installed to border the cemetery and roadways.

The first person to be buried in St. Joseph’s Cemetery was Albert Talarczyk, who died in the Flood of 1917.
