Resurrection Catholic Cemetery

Justice

Resurrection Cemetery is a large Catholic cemetery in the southwest suburbs, adjacent to Bethania on Archer Avenue. The older sections have stones dating back to the 1890s, but most burials there are more recent. The cemetery is very modern, dominated by a huge mausoleum, an outdoor garden mausoleum, and numerous "shrine sections" where a central figure of a religious theme is surrounded by flat markers.

The most common monument is a narrow pedestal, 5-7 feet tall, topped with a cross, or, less frequently, a saint. Monuments in the shape of trees are often seen as well. I did not see a single obelisk - a pagan symbol that is permitted in most other Catholic cemeteries.

Resurrection Cemetery is world-famous as the home of the ghostly "Resurrection Mary".
