This cemetery is reserved for deceased Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati (SC)

Located behind the Mount St. Joseph Motherhouse. More than 1,700 Sisters are buried on the grounds; each year close to 20 more burials take place.* The first grave, June 1883, was that of Mother Regina Mattingly. In 1909, a center circle was reserved for the graves of the original members of the Cincinnati Sisters of Charity; graves from the previous Motherhouse were moved; future Mothers were also buried here. At his own request, Bishop Thomas S. Byrne (a former chaplain for 18 years) was buried in the circle. Other points of interest include “Fields Afar” engraved memorial books that list Sisters not buried at the cemetery, and the gate from the previous Motherhouse.
