Gravediggers at Chapel of the Cross Cemetery

Recently I ran across some information about gravediggers. These gravediggers are, in fact, parishioners at Chapel of the Cross, an Episcopal church and cemetery located in Madison County. A picture of the cemetery located beside and behind the historic chapel, appears as the banner photo on this blog today. Volunteer members of this unique parish ministry dig graves, by hand, in which deceased parish members will be buried.

To read more about this unique ministry, visit the parish's website.
