Serving the Catholic Community for 165 years

Madonna Cemetery is 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.

Family Feedback

I love this cemetery and have found the staff to be very supportive and interested in the families whose loved ones are laid to rest at Madonna. My family has several plots and my grandmother, grand aunt and uncle, and parents are loving cared for by the grounds crew. We visit and decorate the graves for the holidays with great joy. I am happy to know there is one spot left for me when that day comes. It is a beautiful site.
