Calvary Catholic Cemetery & Funeral Center FD2262

History

Calvary Cemetery, established and dedicated in 1953 by Bishop Robert Armstrong, is  the second largest Catholic Cemetery of the Diocese of Sacramento. Located just off  highway 80 and Greenback lane on Verner Avenue, Calvary Cemetery serves the greater  Sacramento area’s Catholic and Christian communities.  With the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains as a backdrop, the Calvary Cemetery  features more than forty acres of rolling hills and green lawns. This magnificent  landscape leads to the cemetery’s prominent feature—the altar shaped monument at the  base of the large marble crucifix—known as Mount Calvary.

The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is held every Saturday at 10:00 am to pray for the more than 14,000 faithfully departed souls buried here.
