Mother Cabrini Mausoleum Renovation

The renovation project for Mother Cabrini Mausoleum at Mt. Olivet Catholic Cemetery was completed in May 2023. The renovations included structural refurbishments and new concrete walkways.

Swan Pond Renovation

The beautification project for Swan Pond at Mt. Olivet Catholic Cemetery was completed in the summer of 2022. The project included new retaining walls, landscaping, and islands for the Blessed Virgin Mary and Sacred Heart of Jesus statues. Swan Pond is adjacent to Madonna Lake and north of Mt. Olivet’s Lake Mausoleum and main office building. It was once the home to nesting swans that resided at Mt. Olivet year-round, hence its name. Although swans don’t currently nest at Swan Pond, it remains popular with a variety of waterfowl and, in the Spring, it is common to see baby ducks and geese swimming on the pond. 

The Catholic philosopher, Peter Kreeft, once observed, “Beauty is the first thing we notice and love. It is the ambassador for truth and goodness.” Therefore, the beauty of Mt. Olivet Catholic Cemetery is a very important part of our ministry and core purpose of Filling the Void of Loss with Faith.

The grounds of a Catholic cemetery are consecrated and are an extension of the Catholic Church.  They play a vital role in our Catholic faith and are a symbol of the reverence we hold for the human body when the soul passes on to God. The cemetery communicates to the world that the body rests here in this sacred ground to be remembered and reverenced as we wait, in hope, for the promise of the resurrection. The beauty present in the cemetery reminds us that all things were created by God and all things were created for God (Colossians 1:16). So, when families come to Mt. Olivet Catholic Cemetery, they enjoy the beauty of the grounds and they are comforted as they remember their loved ones, knowing that that they will all, one day, be reunited together with God in Heaven. 

Irrigation System Upgrade
