Calvary Hill Cemetery
Calvary Hill Cemetery’s green, picturesque grounds offer a variety of cemetery property selections to accommodate every family's needs, including estate areas, mausoleums and columbaria featuring glass-front niches. Our mausoleums and columbaria are located both indoors and outdoors. In addition to ground markers and upright monuments, families can also choose from private family mausoleum and columbaria, and hedge and walled estate areas.
Calvary Hill is consistently developing new options to meet a variety of family preferences and price points. Lovely waterfront options will soon be available with the development of a beautiful new lake and water feature on cemetery grounds.
Visitors to Calvary Hill Cemetery will find three mausoleums, including one patio mausoleum. Our original mausoleum, a chapel dedicated by Bishop Thomas K. Gorman in 1966, is adorned with stained glass windows and provides an inspiring and peaceful place for reflection. The mausoleum can also serve as a chapel for committal services.
History of Calvary Hill Funeral Home & Calvary Hill Cemetery
Calvary Hill Funeral Home and Calvary Hill Cemetery were built on a foundation of faith, dignity and tradition. The funeral home was constructed in 2001, but its history dates back to the beginning of Calvary Hill Cemetery. The cemetery grounds, which were purchased by the Catholic Diocese, saw their first interment on December 18, 1926.
Located at 3235 Lombardy Lane in northwest Dallas, the cemetery was established by Bishop Joseph Patrick Lynch when it became apparent that the existing Calvary Cemetery on Hall Street was no longer adequate to serve the needs of the growing Catholic community in Dallas. The new cemetery, which includes the original Letot family cemetery, was dedicated on All Souls' Day in 1929. When Calvary Hill Cemetery opened, a Priests' Circle was established for the interment of members of the clergy, and many were relocated from Old Calvary.
In 1966, the first of several mausoleums was dedicated by Bishop Thomas K. Gorman, including a chapel for committal services and reflection. In 2009, the remains of former bishops of Dallas were entombed in the chapel.
Most of the religious orders in our area have designated sections for burial in Calvary Hill, and some of the oldest and most prominent Catholic families in the region have members interred here. A beautiful altar depicting the scene of the crucifixion stands in the park and was erected in 1930 and expresses the theme of the cemetery. The annual All Souls' Day and Memorial Day masses were celebrated at this altar until 1967, when they were moved to be held in the new mausoleum chapel which had been built in 1966.
Commitment to community
At Calvary Hill Funeral Home & Calvary Hill Cemetery, the funeral home and cemetery teams offer annual celebrations for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. We welcome families to come and spend the day in our park as often as possible. We also hold events for Día de los Muertos, the Feast of Guadalupe and All Souls' Day, as well as hosting an annual cookout to honor our local servicemen and servicewomen. We are closely involved with community programs and our local Catholic churches.
