Cardinal Tobin Blesses New Open-Air Mausoleum of the Holy Spirit Site

Attend Open House April 6 & 7 at Holy Cross Cemetery before prices increase April 8

NORTH ARLINGTON, N.J., March 28, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — The brisk, foggy morning made the earth fertile for the groundbreaking of a new leading-edge mausoleum at Holy Cross Cemetery and Mausoleum in the borough of North Arlington, in Bergen County, NJ.


Before Cardinal Joseph W. Tobin, C.Ss.R., D.D., Archbishop of Newark, blessed the construction site and the builders that will make the solemn structure possible, he reflected on the significance of the occasion and what it will mean to families and future generations who will honor the lives of their loved ones with this resting space, like so many Catholics before them.

“Friends, this mausoleum to be built here is where the bodies sealed in the name of Christ will lie at rest awaiting the dawn of the Lord’s coming and glory,” prayed Cardinal Tobin while surrounded by cemetery staff. “May it always be a reminder of the life we are to share in Christ. He will transform our earthly bodies to be like His in glory. Let us pray during our time here that God will bring this construction to successful completion and that His protection will keep those who work on it safe from injury.”

As part of the ongoing commitment by Catholic Cemeteries of the Archdiocese of Newark to offer a new place of peace and reflection at Holy Cross Cemetery, the future Open-Air Mausoleum of the Holy Spirit represents a significant stride in combining functionality with aesthetic grace.

The meticulously planned mausoleum features an easily navigable layout, ensuring that visits are comforting and convenient for all families with heritage in the original mausoleum, which is 95 percent reserved. 

The structure itself will feature architectural elegance, fixed skylights, and magnificent liturgical artwork. It will integrate with the natural surroundings, accented by majestic trees and brilliant seasonal flora. 

The new Open-Air Mausoleum of the Holy Spirit will feature a prayerful committal chapel with a colorful liturgical mosaic at the center and three crosses above. Granite-covered crypts and cremation niches will provide families with sacred resting spaces for their loved ones to pray and honor their memory for generations to come.
