St. Francis Xavier Cemetery

"I am the way, the truth and the life." John 14:6 St. Francis Xavier Cemetery is located at 86 Fort Hill Rd, behind the Big Y Supermarket, in New Milford, CT.   It was established in the mid 1800's and is scenically located on Fort Hill Road overlooking the Town of New Milford. The tranquil setting at the foot of a mountain surrounded by century-old trees has been touched by God's loving hand. This sacred space overflows with beauty and dignity.   Our Catholic Cemetery is an enduring and powerful sign of our faith for the entire community. Our deceased brothers and sisters are gone but they remain part of our lives and part of our community. Our world is reminded of the sacredness of life and the dignity of the human person. Our cemetery affirms these values and provides witness to our faith that death is not the end, but the beginning of our new life in Christ. May we always cherish the memories of our loved ones.   photo We are currently utilizing 7 acres of consecrated ground for burial with 3 additional acres available for expansion. A Columbarium is available for cremation burials, it has 78 individual niche spaces for the burial of ashes.   If you would like more information, or a list of cemetery fees, or to purchase a grave or niche, please call Jocelyne in the cemetery office.
