Although St. John the Baptist Church and Sacred Heart of Jesus Church are now known as Our Lady Queen of Angels Church, it was agreed, for the present time, that the cemeteries would keep their original names.  Both cemeteries, however, are bound by one set of Rules and Regulations established by the Diocese, in addition to those set by the local pastor and the Cemetery Advisory Committee. Both cemeteries are owned and operated by the Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown and Our Lady Queen of Angels Catholic Church.
