For decades, St. Charles Monuments has worked closely with St. Charles Resurrection Cemetery in Farmingdale, NY. St. Charles Resurrection Cemetery has existed for many years. The history of how the land became the cemetery it is today dates back to the late 1800s.
The Origin of the Cemetery
In the early 1900s, Bishop Charles McDonnell started to acquire the lands that now comprise St. Charles Cemetery. The Archdiocese of New York had purchased that land and Pinelawn Cemetery. After Bishop McDonnell passed away in 1921, Archbishop Thomas Molloy completed the purchase of the land that now forms St. Charles Cemetery. Archbishop Molloy arranged for the purchase of this cemetery from the Archdiocese in 1953. His goal was to combine both areas of land to create one large cemetery.
Serving The Families of Long Island
The Diocese of Brooklyn obtained the land that formed St. Charles Resurrection Cemeteries. This allowed Long Island families to be buried in the same Catholic cemetery as their relatives. Today, St. Charles Resurrection Cemetery serves Catholics throughout all of New York. In 2007, the Diocese of Brooklyn transferred cemetery ownership to the St. John’s Cemetery Corporation. This enhanced the supervision and operation of these cemeteries. Today it owns and operates all the cemeteries for the Brooklyn Diocese.
St. Charles Cemetery Today
Families that seek a Catholic Cemetery often choose St. Charles Resurrection Cemetery. Each year, the cemetery creates new burial plots. Furthermore, in 2016 they created the new section 104. This section contains the Holy Cross Columbaria and a tribute to Saint Elizabeth Seton, the patron saint of seafarers.
