St. Mary's Cemetery and Mausoleum

Why Catholic Cemeteries Are Unique

Catholic Cemeteries, being an integral part of the Church’s beliefs and rites, are traditionally selected by Catholics for the burial of their loved ones. The Catholic Cemetery reflects the doctrine and liturgy of the Catholic Church, and provides protection under Church law for the assurance of permanence, reverence, and respect for the remains of the deceased.

Our Cemeteries are significant places of prayer for, and devotion to, the souls of the faithful departed.

Catholic Cemeteries, by their existence, proclaim through their work and example, the sacredness of human life, believe in the resurrection, and are symbols of faith, hope, and comfort.

We often get ask about the various options for Funeral Masses and Services, this document explains the Catholic Funeral Mass. For additional assistance, this Funeral Planning sheet  may be helpful, for additional questions; our Cemetery Coordinator can connect you with our Pastoral Administrator for Spiritual readings and Mass Burial, and our Music Director for hymnals and compositions. All so we can make your loved ones next journey a spiritual and honored one.

Our Cemetery and Mausoleum

St. Mary’s Cemetery and Mausoleum is located at 375 Park Ave., in Corning, NY. It serves as a sacred gathering place for the faithful to celebrate Christ’s promise of life everlasting within the Catholic tradition and also offers a quiet retreat for pray, reflection and remembrance of loved ones who have gone before us.

The St. Mary’s Cemetery Association oversees the general operation and beautification of the cemetery and acts as an advisory board. The association is comprised of volunteers of the parish dedicated in keeping the cemetery in pristine condition.
