St. Matthew Cemetery

St. Matthews view from inside The Saint Matthew Cemetery is located on Springfield Street close to Glenwood Circle and the border of Chicopee. It is the predecessor to Calvary Cemetery in Chicopee. The cemetery opened in 1855. Holy Name of Jesus Parish, Chicopee was established in 1838, and prior to the construction of the present church, was known as Saint Matthew Parish. It was the first parish west of Worcester and served all four counties that currently define the Catholic Diocese of Springfield. We believe that this may be the oldest Catholic cemetery in Western Massachusetts. St. Matthew Cemetery is maintained by the Springfield Diocesan Cemeteries, Inc.
