Andrew P. Schafer, the executive director of Catholic Cemeteries for the Archdiocese of Newark, offered an interesting idea: the cemeteries are the true archives of the archdiocese.
In other words, the lives of the faithful make up the mosaic of people whose lives we remember during the month of November. And especially this Sunday, the first Sunday of November, when throughout the U.S., it is Cemetery Sunday.
Catholic Cemeteries cordially invites you to our Memorial Day Mass celebrated annually on our beautiful cemetery grounds. Invite friends and family to the celebration of Mass to pray and remember the faithful departed. Mass begins at 11:00AM.
This section is intended to provide both a background for our longstanding Catholic cemetery tradition and specific information about various programs, policies and procedures operative in our archdiocesan cemeteries.
