The latest news about our 5 beautiful cemeteries
New Signs at Resurrection & Gethsemane Cemeteries + New Columbariums at Gethsemane
New granite cemetery signs are now at the entrances of Resurrection and Gethsemane cemeteries. At Gethsemane Cemetery, two new columbariums have also been installed in the Rosary Garden.

Pond Restoration at Resurrection Cemetery
All those who visit Resurrection Cemetery have seen its lovely pond, but now the pond is undergoing a restoration process. This is a before and current photo as of November of 2021. The work is scheduled to happen between the Fall of 2021 and in the Spring of 2022. Thank you for your patience as we update this beautiful area!
Stolen Vases at Resurrection Cemetery

The Mendota Heights Police have been alerted and ask property owners to contact them directly at 651-452-1366 to file a police report. A copy of this police report will need to be sent to the Resurrection Cemetery Office to facilitate vase replacement. Please contact the Resurrection Cemetery Office at 651-454-5072 if you have any questions.
Area Restoration and Roadwork at Calvary Cemetery
When visiting Calvary cemetery, you may notice that some roads have been repaved. Other areas are undergoing restoration, where roads have been removed to allow for new sections so families can choose to be buried in the same area where their loved ones are interred. In the life of a cemetery, roads are intended to be taken out as more earth burial graves are needed. Eventually, a cemetery will wind up with a road around its perimeter with one or two roads going through the inside of the cemetery. We thank you for your patience, your presence and continued patronage of this historic cemetery.
Lexington Avenue renovations at Resurrection Cemetery
As you may have noticed, the fence along with trees and shrubs was recently removed along Lexington Ave. at Resurrection Cemetery. Resurrection is currently undergoing major renovation and landscaping in 2021, with work on the underground infrastructure taking place in this area. We appreciate your patience as we work to make Resurrection even more beautiful!
