Calvary Group, St. Michael’s Cemetery

Note: The pictures in this article disappeared with their image host, but we have added a more recent picture from 2023. The monument, dated 1888, commemorates priests of St. Michael’s parish.

This grouping more notable for its position than for its artistic quality (which is quite good but not extraordinary); it stands at the edge of a steep slope with a panoramic view of the Monongahela valley below. St. Michael’s is a German Catholic cemetery, so the inscription (“I am the resurrection and the life…”) is in German (with “May they rest in peace” Latin, of course).

One response to “Calvary Group, St. Michael’s Cemetery”

  1. I want someone from the cemetery to call me. I have had a few things on my mom’s grave for years but go up today to find a few things thrown over the hill side. I feel the workers are disrespecting my mom n her grave by taking away things my sister n i have put for her.
