Mount Calvary Cemetery is the only Catholic cemetery in west Tennessee, outside of Memphis. It has a long history in the Catholic community of Jackson. Jonathan “Casey” Jones, an internationally-famous railroad engineer, is buried in this cemetery!
The cemetery is operated by our parish staff & cared for by the Friends of Mount Calvary, who maintain and beautify the property throughout the year. Our parish is currently in the process of upgrading the cemetery’s fencing for security. If you would like to be involved in the renovation of the cemetery, or become one of the Friends of Mount Calvary, please email Calli Carpenter at our parish office.
We also are in the process of digitizing cemetery records and providing online search capabilities. If you would like to search online for your loved ones burial place, or post pictures, videos, & written memories of your loved ones, visit our new Remember My Journey page.
