GATE OF HEAVEN CEMETERY UPDATE

The Stevens Avenue entrance to Gate of Heaven Cemetery has been reopened.  The entrance had been closed following the storm of July 12.  In addition, the Administration Building is also open for business.

Sections 35, 36, and 43 and the Saint Francis Mausoleum remain closed to visitors as clean-up efforts proceed.  All other sections of the cemetery are open to visitors.

Gate of Heaven staff are working hard to restore to normal operating conditions those areas of the cemetery that were affected by the storm.
