Cemetery of the Church of St. Patrick
The cemetery of the Church of St. Patrick is approximately five miles to the south-west of the current church building. It is a beautiful area of Inver Grove Heights and Dakota County, Minnesota, with the oldest part of the cemetery atop a hill. The oldest monuments and mature trees are located in this section while the newest additions to the cemetery are directly to the right as one enters the cemetery roadway. Directions to the cemetery can be found at the bottom of this page.
The newest section of the cemetery is also the home of our monument dedicated to the babies who have lost their lives to abortion. The front of the monument reads: In memory of the babies who have been victims of abortion. May the Angels lead them into paradise. This monument can be found in the St. Patrick Cemetery by taking the first right hand turn once on the cemetery roadway.
