OCTOBER 2014 Calendar of Events

+ + + + + + + + + +

SCAM ALERT – It has recently come to the attention of the Greensburg Catholic Cemetery that bogus calls are being made to families and individuals in regard to purchasing graves or mausoleum spaces at the cemetery. It is NOT the practice of the Greensburg Catholic Cemetery to solicit sales by phone. These calls appear to be a part of a scam since they are not authorized by us.
If you should receive a call about purchasing anything at Greensburg Catholic Cemetery please contact the cemetery office at 724-836-4384. Additionally, if you have caller ID it would be helpful to note the incoming number if possible. If you have already received a call, please contact us in that case as well.

Parish Census Information:  Please Note – Earlier this year, we sent by postal mail (Bulk Rate) several mailings.  IF YOU HAVE NOT received  these mailings and are a member of the SEAS parish family, please contact the parish office to rectify the situation.  You may not be listed as an active member, and if you are, we want to correct our records so that you receive our correspondence.   Also, as we work to update our records, anyone over the age of 18 should be registered as an adult, even if you are still living at home with your parents.  If you have an adult child who is no longer living in the area and has already registered at their new parish, please let us know.  In our ongoing process of trying to update our records, we are checking on “adult” children who are listed under their parent’s information.  Letters are being sent to families who have adult children listed (some of these ‘children’ may even be in their 30’s!) We ask that if you receive a letter, please return it promptly to the parish office.  Many thanks!
