Cemetery Day

The Cemetery Visitation this fall will take place at St. John’s Lithuanian Cemetery on Sunday, November 1. Holy Mass for the deceased will be at the church 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Lithuanian Martyrs Church, the Anapilis grounds and cemetery will be open for visitation, provided safe distances are kept between people at the church, visiting gravesites, as well as between parked cars. You can reach the office of Lithuanian Martyrs’ Church via email: lkankiniai@gmail.com or call (905) 277-4320.

Lunch during Cemetery Day on Sunday, November 1 will be sold outside the doors of the Museum Hall (Hall “D”) from 10 AM to 4 PM. The menu will consist of potato zeppelins/”cepelinai,” kugel, and sausages with cabbage and potatoes, as well as drinks. All food will be prepared and sold according to government health guidelines.
 – We ask that, if you wish to purchase food, to drive up to the hall doors without exiting your vehicle; instead, open the driver’s window, place your exact order, and hand over cash payment through the window.
– One serving of food will cost $10. We ask that you arrive with the exact amount beforehand, as due to health reasons we cannot hand over change.
– Once you are handed your boxed order in a bag, we ask that you immediately drive further up the parking lot to ensure the next car in line can take your place by the doors. The halls will be closed to the public.
