Mission Statement

The mission of the Calvary and Allied Cemeteries is to provide sacred burial ground and blessed crypts for the dignified repose of Catholics and their families. It is a duty and an honor for the management and staff of the cemeteries to maintain the grounds as a beautiful, permanent, safe, reverent tribute to the deceased.

Our History

The Calvary and Allied Cemeteries in New York are entrusted to the care and management of the Trustees of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, an entity formed in 1817 to acquire appropriate land and develop dignified cemeteries in the Catholic tradition. There are now five cemeteries, including Calvary in Queens, Gate of Heaven and St. Mary’s in Westchester, Resurrection in Staten Island and Ascension in Rockland. They encompass 970 beautifully maintained acres.

Since 1845, almost two million individuals have been interred in the consecrated ground of the five cemeteries, a powerful reflection of the Catholic faith’s central belief in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Each site welcomes family and friends to visit the peaceful resting places of their loved ones.
