As a result of the Making All Things New pastoral planning process, Our Lady of Mercy merged with three other parishes in Port Chester to become St. John Bosco Parish. In 2018, St. Mary’s Cemetery was transferred to the Trustees of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the entity that has been responsible for cemeteries of the Archdiocese of New York since 1848.
To date, more than 25,000 Catholics and members of their families have been laid to rest in the 18.37 peaceful acres of St. Mary’s Cemetery. They are interred in graves, private family and community mausoleum crypts and in cremation niches located within the community mausoleums.
Although the grave areas have been fully developed and are limited, there is an excellent selection of crypts and cremation niches in the well-lit, tastefully decorated community mausoleums. If ground burial is your family’s preference – space is available at Gate of Heaven Cemetery.
