St. Francis de Sales Parish is entrusted with the care of historic Mt. Calvary and St. Joseph Cemeteries. While plots at Mt. Calvary are no longer available, it remains a beautiful resting place for many of the founding members of Newark’s Catholic community, including Father William Hayes, who built the current St. Francis de Sales Church. St. Joseph Cemetery continues to provide dignified burials for the deceased in our community.
To purchase cemetery plots at St. Joseph or for general cemetery questions, please contact Christopher Urbiel in the cemetery office. Please note that we are unable to assist you with genealogy questions.

“Our cemeteries honor these departed brothers and sisters, serving as a memorial to their lives — their hopes, their achievements, and their legacy. They remind those of us who remain in this world to strive for what we hope our faithful departed have achieved — life everlasting in the arms of God.”
+ James A. Griffin, Bishop Emeritus of Columbus
