Earlier this year, the Marist Brothers Center in Esopus began planning an expansion plan for the Marist Brothers Cemetery on the property. In the following months, the cemetery underwent major renovations thanks to the vision, dedication, and hard work of Br. Owen Ormsby, Mr. Michael Trainor, and Mr. Tom Brophy. Following the conclusion of the expansion work, the Marist Brothers held a special prayer service on the feast of All Souls Day where they rededicated the cemetery. Leading the prayer service was Father Gene Grohe, and more than forty Brothers and Lay Marists were in attendance. Br. Patrick McNamara offered words of gratitude on behalf of the province to all who have made and continue to make the sacred space even more beautiful.
