Public access to Gate of Heaven Catholic Cemetery as of March, 23, 2020.
Dear Friends and Family,
As our community, and the world, continue to take unprecedented actions deemed necessary to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus and in conjunction with the current “Stay-At-Home” order in the State of Ohio, Gate of Heaven Catholic Cemetery has instituted additional processes and policies intended to minimize safety risks while fulfilling our mission of providing corporal and spiritual works of mercy.
In keeping with guidance from our local and state authorities and the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, and as part of the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce as specified by the U. S. Department of Homeland Security and recognized by The State of Ohio, we at Gate of Heaven Catholic Cemetery have enacted a minimal staffing protocol, which requires us to keep our office doors locked and to minimize pedestrian traffic throughout the cemetery.
If you are in need of immediate service, we encourage you to contact our office by phone or email, from the safety of your home or place of quarantine. If you find yourself at the locked entrance of the cemetery office, it will be necessary for you to call our main number: (513) 489-0300 and our personnel will work to accommodate your needs.
We will continue to monitor developments in the effort to limit exposure to the COVID-19 virus and its potential transmission throughout our local area, including our homes and workplaces, and will make additional adjustments as warranted. Please continue to pray for all of those who are infected by this illness, and others, and for all of us as we manage through this crisis.
