Ascension Garden Cemetery, located on the east side of Rochester, was born out of the history and excellence of Holy Sepulchre Cemetery and the original vision of Bishop McQuaid.
Consecrated in the Catholic tradition, Ascension Garden is located near Mendon Ponds Park, and fits seamlessly into the pastoral beauty of the rolling hills, wooded areas and tranquility that naturally exists. Ascension Garden provides family and friends a peaceful and prayerful environment to remember loved ones and to acknowledge Christ’s promise of new life after death.
