Development is underway at Queen of Peace Cemetery in Old Westbury. Queen of Peace is located just 2 miles north of Cemetery of the Holy Rood. Even though construction is still in the initial stages, a limited number of graves have been made available for immediate need burials.  These graves will ensure that Catholic Cemeteries of Long Island can continue to fulfill our mission of serving the Catholic community of Nassau County.

The grounds in the initial burial section – Section 1 – were blessed by Bishop John O. Barres on Monday, May 4th, 2020. The Bishop’s blessing designated this section as “Sacred ground” and therefore appropriate for Catholic burials. Phase 1 of development, which will continue throughout calendar year 2021, will include the construction of our Chapel, Administration Building, Mausoleums, and our Maintenance Building. As of now a selection of single and double grave plots are available for immediate need.

A selection of single grave and double grave plots are available for immediate need burials. Families interested in purchasing a plot at Queen of Peace should contact our Holy Rood office at (516) 334-7990 to set up an appointment with a Customer Sales and Service Representative. Please note that Queen of Peace will operate with restrictions on access and visitation while development continues on the property.

Pre-need sales at Queen of Peace will occur at a subsequent time. Click here to sign up to receive email updates on Queen of Peace or continue to monitor our website for the latest updates.
