Mt. Benedict Cemetery

Posted by on Aug 26, 2021 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

We apologize for the condition of Mt. Benedict Cemetery. We have had a staffing issue that we are working with our employees union to resolve. The high volume of rain and high temperatures have slowed our ability to resolve the grass and trimming issues quickly.

We appreciate your patience and we want to let you know that we are committed to resolving the condition of the cemetery.

MEMORIAL DAY MASSES CANCELLED FOR 2021

Posted by on May 4, 2021 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

It is with great regret that The Board of Directors of the Boston Catholic Cemetery Association must announce the cancellation of our Annual Memorial Day Masses at Mount Benedict and New Calvary Cemetery again this year.

We thank everyone that has supported the Annual Masses for many years.

Our concern for the safety of our families in the current pandemic crisis and the uncertainty of its duration has led to this decision.

We hope to see you on Memorial Day in 2022.

Please stay safe!
