Holy Cards

Calvary Cemetery has produced a unique, limited edition set of holy cards highlighting the local Catholic parishes in the Illinois Quad Cities, as well as the cemetery itself. They will be available at our local parishes and the Calvary office. These cards each feature a stunning photo of one of the parishes in the Illinois Quad Cities on the front, with a special prayer on the reverse. They were created as a means of uniting the area Catholic community with each other, and to Calvary Cemetery by showing off the unique beauty of our local churches, as well as the works of art found in Calvary. The hope is that the cards will be in such demand that it will encourage Catholics to visit each of the other parishes to pick up one of the cards and stay to attend Mass in a parish that they may not otherwise visit. One of the recent goals of the Growing in Faith Together (GIFT) initiative of the Diocese of Peoria was to encourage better communication and cooperation between parishes, and these holy cards hope to help in that regard by encouraging Catholics to begin visiting each of the other parishes. They also serve to remind people that Calvary Cemetery in Rock Island is the final resting place of our Catholic ancestors and continues to be a source of our Catholic identity in our faith in the Resurrection.
