We invite you to visit the St. James columbarium at Calvary Cemetery. It is located near the center of the cemetery and provides sweeping views of Lake Washington and the University of Washington. The top of the Space Needle and the downtown skyscrapers peek above the hill beyond. This is truly a striking location within the cemetery.

About Calvary Catholic Cemetery
Calvary Cemetery –

Calvary Cemetery was blessed and formally dedicated on December 1, 1889 as a diocesan cemetery for the Diocese of Nesqually in the Territory of Washington. Much has changed over the years. The Diocese of Nesqually is now the Archdiocese of Seattle. Calvary Cemetery is a sacred place, a place of prayer and quiet reflection that invites us to remember all those “who have gone now before us marked with the sign of faith.”

Strolling the 40-acre grounds of Calvary Cemetery is a walk though Seattle’s past. Members of the Catholic community buried at Calvary include Union and Confederate veterans of the Civil War and refugees from the war in Vietnam. The priests of the Archdiocese of Seattle are at rest here along with members of several communities of women religious. The grounds offer sweeping views of Lake Washington, Mt. Rainier, the University of Washington, and glimpses of downtown Seattle.

Calvary continues to service our community. Burial space for both traditional casket burial as well as cremation placement
is still available at Calvary. We invite you to contact Calvary for a personalized tour and the opportunity to have your questions answered.
