Help Catholic Cemeteries of the Archdiocese of Newark feed the hungry

While visiting loved ones during the Advent and Christmas seasons, please participate in the Catholic Cemeteries Annual Christmas Food Drive by providing non-perishable food items for local food pantries.

The food donations, to be distributed by Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Newark, will help feed families who are less fortunate throughout our Archdiocese.

  • Holy Cross Cemetery, 340 Ridge Road, North Arlington, NJ
