Parish Cemeteries

Saint John Paul II Parish operates two different cemeteries:

Saint Mary Cemetery was founded in 1850 and is located on Evergreen Street which is the right fork from Charlton Street at the Charlton Street School. There are no two grave lots available, single grave lots and four grave lots are still available for sale.

Saint Hedwig Cemetery was founded in 1955 and is located on Woodstock Road (Route 169) on the north bound side near the Connecticut state line. There are eight, six, four, two and single grave lots available.

There is no limit to the number of cremains that can be buried in a grave lot.
