St. Peter’s Cemetery

Romans 6: 4  —  We were buried therefore with Him by baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.

St. Peter’s Lutheran Church Cemetery is located at #682325 Sullivan Sideroad 6 in the Township of Chatsworth, Ontario.
