About St. Joseph Cemetery
We are blessed here at The Parish of St. Joseph to have our own cemetery to serve our Parish community. Our cemetery was established in the 1880’s when Edward and Bridget Cooley of Babylon transferred ownership to the Trustees of St. Joseph Church of almost 5 acres of property at the cost of $1.00 for the purpose of a cemetery for deceased Romans Catholics. Since then it has become a sacred place to pray and reflect, a place that holds our treasured memories of the past, allows us to grieve our loss in our own way and time. The cemetery is holy ground that nourishes and strengthens us to carry on and continues to be a place of healing and serenity for our parish families today.
St. Joseph Cemetery is located in a residential neighborhood in Babylon Village off Old Farmingdale Road and the Sunrise Highway South Service road. Adjacent to North Babylon Cemetery it can be accessed by either road. The cemetery is open from morning to dusk. Cemetery regulations are posted at the Cemetery entrance on Old Farmindale Road.
