Memorial Day Masses to be held at two Middlesex County cemeteries

May 25, 2018

Rev. Msgr. Joseph G. Celano, Episcopal Vicar of Administration, will preside at an outdoor Memorial Day Mass at 10 a.m. May 28, rain or shine, on the grounds of Resurrection Cemetery, Hoes Lane and Park Ave., Piscataway.

At the same time, Very Rev. Thomas J. Walsh, pastor of St. Bartholomew Parish in East Brunswick, will preside at a Mass at Holy Cross Cemetery, 840 Cranbury South River Road, Jamesburg.

As part of a national Catholic cemeteries’ celebration entitled, “Serving God and Country: A Memorial Day Salute to Our Heroes,” the program was developed to honor those men and women who died while serving in the armed forces, as well as recognize both our active military and military veterans who have served our country. This year, there will be a wreath laying ceremony, which will include honor guard participation, the playing of TAPS at the end of the Mass.

All are welcome. For more information, contact the diocesan Cemeteries Office at 800-943-8400 or or visit the website at
