Calvary Catholic Cemetery

Calvary’s Story

In 1886, the diocese established the Calvary Cemetery Association and Calvary Cemetery, a 200-acre tract of land in the Hazelwood area of Pittsburgh. The first burial took place in June 1888.

Calvary Cemetery remains the largest of the diocesan cemeteries. Today it includes two beautiful chapel mausoleums, a large garden crypt development, the exclusive Cardinal Wright Oratory crypts, a large priests’ plot, and Shepherd’s Rest, a mausoleum set aside for the entombment of bishops of the Diocese of Pittsburgh. The central office of The Catholic Cemeteries Association is located on its premises.

Calvary Cemetery will have a prayer service on July 28. Visit our Memorial Prayer Services page for the full list of dates and times for all cemeteries.
