Butterfly release

butterflyrelease-webA guest prepares to release a butterfly following a memorial Mass at New St. Mary’s Cemetery and Mausoleum in Bellmawr on June 8. First celebrated in 2010, the Mass and butterfly releases are held in each of the Camden Diocese’s major cemetery and mausoleum locations. Catholic Cemeteries sends invitations to family members of the deceased laid to rest at that location during the prior calendar year, and has a book of remembrance available for guests to sign and write messages. The next memorial Mass and butterfly release will be held at Sacred Heart Cemetery and Mausoleum, 741 East Walnut Road, Vineland, on Sept. 28, 10 a.m.
