Mount Calvary Cemetery grounds were blessed by the Most Rev. Edwin V. Byrne, Archbishop of Santa Fe, on April 30, 1950. This cemetery added eighteen acres of land next to the Santa Barbara Cemetery, whose first burial was recorded in August of 1870.
On November 30, 1992 The Most Rev. Archbishop Robert E. Sanchez celebrated the first mass in the newly built Chapel/Mausoleum A building that provides crypts for caskets, in which embalming of the deceased is required. Niches for cremated remains are also available in a mausoleum
dedicated to Our Lady. On Friday June 10, 2005, the Most Rev. Archbishop Michael Sheehan blessed the newest development, dedicated to Our Lady of Guadalupe. This development is a new concept and offers burial options to both the body and cremated remains A term used when referring to the ashes of the human body after cremation
of the deceased.
Both Santa Barbara and Mt. Calvary are rich in history. The staff at Mt. Calvary attempts to honor this history and understands that the death of a loved one is a difficult time. They strive to provide services that meet the unique needs of each family while still holding fast to the teaching of the Church.
