***This post has had a clarification added 07/22/2020.

With the Diocese of Allentown and Berks County entering their respective Green Phases, Gethsemane Cemetery has just a few additional updates to share.

The Diocese of Allentown has permitted attendance at Churches and Chapels at 50% of seating capacity. For our Chapels, we will be limiting attendance to 35 – 40 persons depending on the Chapel in use. Those in attendance that would exceed this limit, may be asked to remain outside or in a different room of our mausoleums.

All other protocols from our June 1, 2020 Update will remain in place and we continue to ask visitors and attendees to adhere to social distancing and mask recommendations. This includes the following “Mausoleum Chapels will be available for committal services only. Prayer services and Masses will not be held in the Chapels at this time.”

Thank you again for everyone’s cooperation and understanding during this difficult time.
