St. Mary's Cemetery
 St. Mary’s Cemetery, Bernard Street, Dorchester, MA 02124

The other burying-ground on Norfolk Street originally contained about ten acres, but has been considerably enlarged. It was purchased on the twelfth of August, 1850, of John Tolman, and has been used for the interment of Roman Catholics.

From its humble beginnings on May 24, 1851, when 215 original members incorporated the Catholic Cemetery Society in Dorchester, the Association is still performing the task it was mandated to do - provide a final resting place for our departed and beloved dead. Started in one small Cemetery in Dorchester, the Association now maintains four non-sectarian cemeteries of which two are in the area that was Dorchester when the town was annexed to the city in 1870: New Calvary Cemetery and St. Mary’s Cemetery.
