SALT LAKE CITY -- The Sisters of Mount Benedict Monastery are transferring the deceased sisters from their cemetery at the monastery to Mount Calvary Catholic Cemetery, 275 U St., Salt Lake City.
The public is invited to a short ceremony as the sisters are reinterred at 2 p.m. Tuesday.
The deceased sisters being transferred are Sister Francis Forster, who died in 2000; Sister Jeremia Januschka, who died in 2006, and Sister Judine Suter, who died in 2008.
"We thought that the sisters ministered so long in the Utah area, it was appropriate that their remains will be here," said Sister Luke Hoschette.
She said the Salt Lake City facility is the only Catholic cemetery in Utah, and that's why it was chosen for the sisters' remains.
Hoschette said the sisters will be buried next to other sisters who served for a length of time in Utah. Priests also are buried in another part of the cemetery.
"This will give an opportunity for their friends to visit their graves if they so desire," Hoschette said.
When the sisters relocate soon to Saint Benedict's Monastery in St. Joseph, Minn., Hoschette said, a headstone also will be placed there for members of the sisters' families to visit if they would like.
"All three have family in Minnesota," Hoschette said. "They were members of that community, so they will be remembered there."
Hoschette said the cemetery may be difficult for people from the Top of Utah to find, and those wishing to attend Tuesday's ceremony should plan for extra time to find it.
The location also has been described as being near 4th Avenue and T Street in Salt Lake City. To get there, travel east on South Temple Street from downtown Salt Lake City. Turn left onto Virginia Street. Turn left onto 5th Avenue. Turn right onto U Street. On the left is 275 U St.
