Holy Sepulchre Cemetery is a huge (332 acres) Roman Catholic cemetery located on both sides of Lake Avenue and adjacent to Riverside Cemetery (to the north) in Rochester, NY. The cemetery was conceived and developed by Bishop McQuaid, Rochester's first Catholic Bishop and namesake for McQuaid Jesuit High School. The east side was dedicated in 1871. The cemetery has many fantastic monuments, and is home to the final resting place of many bishops, priests, and deacons; as well as many women religious and other lay faithful.
