More than 30 members of St. Patrick Knights of Columbus Council 10567 and other volunteers spent all day Saturday, February 2 working at the Fraternal Cemetery in Pratt City.

 This was the third annual work day at the historic cemetery, which houses some of the oldest graves in the city of Birmingham. The cemtery is located across the street from the old St. Catherine Catholic Church.

Three years ago Council 10567 discovered this cemetery in terrible condition and decided to do something about it. Grave sites were completely covered by brush and trees and many were unrecognizable.
