3. There Are Regularly Scheduled Masses at Calvary Cemetery

A unique limestone chapel, constructed by Raymond Almirall in 1895, features bas relief carvings and a granite statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Inspired by Italian churches and mortuary chapels, the building stands in the First Calvary and serves as the site of regularly scheduled masses, including the Eucharist, which is celebrated for those buried within the cemetery. Originally, it was also intended to serve as a burial crypt for New York City’s parish priests.
