History

Calvary Cemetery covers more than 30 acres of land, which was donated to the Diocese of Little Rock in 1823. It is one of the oldest cemeteries in the state. Mausoleums were built on the grounds in 1987 and 1995. Many deceased priests who served the diocese are buried in the “priests’ circle,” which began in 1933.

There are several memorials on the grounds for the unborn and young children, including a monument dedicated for Project Rachel with the names of children their mothers lost through abortion.

The annual All Souls Day Mass is celebrated at the outdoor altar. Today Catholics can choose between ground plots, mausoleum crypts or cremation niches for their final resting place at the historic cemetery. See Catholic cemeteries in Arkansas
