Holy Ghost Cemetery

Hello everybody! Halloween is only a couple days away at this point and I figured what better time to post about my trip (for a school project) to a cemetery than around Halloween time!! Ok, so maybe it isn’t really too exciting, but it was pretty fun nonetheless. We chose to go to Holy Ghost Cemetery in Jessup, PA. It is a Russian Orthodox church’s (Holy Ghost Church, duh) cemetery and was built in 1899. Father Theodore Ladomersky was named pastor of the church in 1903 and only stayed for nine months before he was transferred to Ohio. Two more pastors followed after him a Rev. Emil Artimovitch and a Rev. Michael Lingyel in 1904 and 1907 respectively. Things didn’t work out for these two pastors and in 1908 Father Ladomersky returned to become the pastor of this church again until 1914. There weren’t a lot of prominent names to be found in this cemetery, just a former mayor of Jessup, a Mr. John Mancak. Other than that there were a few World War I and II veterans buried there. Without further ado, here are the pictures! Click the Picture to enter the gallery!
