Bereavement Support

Calvary and Allied Cemeteries have supported the Archdiocesan Family Life Office. Helpful information about parish-based bereavement programs is available from cemetery offices, one's local parish, the Family Life Ministries Office (212) 371-1000.

At various times throughout the year, families are invited to join cemetery management and staff in carrying out the other Corporal Works of Mercy through food and clothing collections as a helpful part of the bereavement process. A twice-yearly newsletter and notifications in Catholic New York are excellent sources of current information.

The Trustees of St. Patrick’s Cathedral owns and operates Calvary, Gate of Heaven, Ascension and Resurrection cemeteries.
