REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.

Welcome to the Gate of Heaven Catholic Cemetery's Wreaths Across America Page. 

On December 19 at 10:00 am, 2020, Wreaths Across America will be at Gate of Heaven Catholic Cemetery to Remember and Honor our veterans through the laying of Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud.

This year, the National Wreaths Across America Day ceremony for our location will be shared virtually on Saturday, December 19th, 2020. We are making necessary modifications to our ceremony plans and laying of veteran wreaths to ensure the safety of all who attend and participate. Limited to 60 guests, must call 408-342-1510 to register. Masks and social distancing are required.
