Saint Mary Catholic Cemetery was the second cemetery established by the German Angel Guardian Orphanage Society. It is the largest cemetery serving the southern area of the Archdiocese of Chicago.
The Interment Chapel, constructed in 1969, was the first "open style" chapel building where extensive use of faceted glass was employed.
The cemetery contains two Garden Crypt facilities, the newest opened in 1981.
Saint Mary Cemetery was in the path of the devastating tornado that touched down in a number of south side locations in 1967 and many trees were lost.
