PLEASE NOTE THIS UPDATE:
NAZARETH CEMETERY of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, founded in 1874 and originally located on the grounds of Nazareth Nursing Home in Mehlville, MO, has been relocated to RESURRECTION CEMETERY in Southwest St. Louis County, which is owned by the Archdiocese of St. Louis.
Nearly 1,200 graves of the pioneer members of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet were relocated. Space for the projected future burial needs of deceased CSJ sisters in the region has also been provided on the new burial lot. There are also three inscribed upright cenotaphs to commemorate Sisters who have donated their remains to medical science erected on the Sisters' burial lot.
The three priest chaplains buried in the original Nazareth cemetery (once very distant from the City of St. Louis) were relocated to the Old Priests' Lot at Calvary Cemetery in North St. Louis.
New monuments have been erected on the new Sisters' Lot at Resurrection Cemetery, followed by a commemoration service and blessing of the lot. The grave relocation had been completed as of Sept. 2009. Portions of statuary and memorial work from the original Nazareth Cemetery were also incorporated into the design of the new lot.
Other relocated nuns' burial lots from other religious orders' former private cemeteries have also been relocated to this section of Resurrection Cemetery.
The new CSJ Sisters lot is platted for future burials from the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, which are now taking place there as well as well as at their 1880's burial lot at Calvary Cemetery.
Roman Catholic Order of teaching, educational and nursing nuns whose national headquarters is based in the Carondelet historic district of St. Louis, MO.
