"I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die."
- John 11:25-26
The New Cathedral Cemetery is comprised of 125 acres of monuments spanning from the 1770’s to current times. It is looked after by a dedicated staff, some of whom have been here since the 1970’s.
The cemetery is the final resting place of more Hall of Fame baseball players than any other cemetery in the country. We have many other well-known sports figures, politicians, Civil War heroes, and famous personalities in our care. Some individuals in our care helped shape our nation while others shape our town. And then there is Mother Mary Lange, who simply helped make the world better.
