Frances Garden

The Frances Garden is a memorial area of the St. Charles Cemetery dedicated in loving memory of unborn and deceased children, whose lives were lost due to any reason, including miscarriage, still born, abortion, accident, or illness. This area was dedicated and a memorial stone erected with the names of our deceased children on July 4th, 2019. Names can be added to the memorial stone and burial plots are reserved for parish families who experience the loss of their children. The Frances Garden is a place of prayer, peace, and remembrance that allows families to visit and realize the hope of God's love for all His children. For more information or to request a name be engraved on the memorial stone, please contact Fr. Daniel Sedlacek at, or
