Pastoral Letter on Christian Burial by the Most Reverend Salvatore R. Matano

The gates to the cemetery are currently open from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. daily. Holy Sepulchre Cemeteries serve as blessed gathering places where the faithful can celebrate Christ’s promise of life everlasting. Our serene, reverent grounds offer a quiet retreat to pray, reflect and honor loved ones who have gone before us. With approximately 450 combined acres of beautifully maintained gardens, stunning architecture and a rich community history, Holy Sepulchre, together with Ascension Garden, is the largest and most active of Rochester’s cemeteries. Explore our website to learn more about each, and the celebration of life everlasting.
