Our Mission

One of the Catholic Church’s “Corporal Works of Mercy” is to “Bury our deceased loved ones”. Our mission is to do so with dignity and to maintain the sacred resting places of our parish beyond the grave with respect, caring for the deceased until the resurrection, so that they may one day enter God’s kingdom in glory.

Thank you for visiting Madonna Cemetery & Mausoleum online. We are a Parish Cemetery in the Archdiocese of Newark. Overlooking the Meadowlands, from the highest geographical point in Bergen County, is the historic Madonna Church on the Hill, the county’s oldest Catholic church. Open to the public, we invite you to visit and pray for our parish beyond the grave, for which Mass is celebrated on the last Sunday of every month. One of the Catholic Church’s “Spiritual Works of Mercy” is to “Pray for the living and our deceased loved ones”.

Weekly Sunday Mass, Funeral Masses and weddings are also celebrated in the Church on the Hill.
