Our Lady Queen of Heaven Chapel Mausoleum is a beautiful, tranquil, final resting place. It is situated among the 126 acres of Resurrection Cemetery in Pine Plains Staten Island, overlooking Raritan Bay. The cemetery was established by Cardinal Terence Cooke to meet the needs of Catholics from both New York and New Jersey.
The new mausoleum is configured in a traditional cloister design. It is carefully lighted and tastefully appointed with exquisite stained glass windows, statuary and bronze reliefs depicting familiar scenes of the life of Our Lord, His Blessed Mother, Saint Joseph and other patron saints.
Its sacred serenity is a powerful witness to our central Catholic belief that Jesus Christ died for our sins. His glorious Resurrection is a foretaste of the promise of eternal life with Him in heaven.
The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is celebrated regularly in the chapel at the center of the mausoleum. Surrounding the chapel are crypts and niches to receive and memorialize the faithfully departed.
