Our Lady of Angels Cemetery

Albany Diocesan Cemeteries hopes to bring our Memorial Day Mass event back after a 2 year hiatus due to the pandemic. This Mass may be postponed or details may change due to the pandemic. Please check back on our website for updates closer to the event date.

Albany Diocesan Cemeteries and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany annually joins thousands of Catholic cemeteries across the United States in a national celebration, "Serving God and Country: A Memorial Day Salute to Our Heroes" at Our Lady of Angels Cemetery in Colonie, NY. The national program, developed by the Catholic Cemetery Conference, honors men and women who died while serving in the armed forces, as well as recognizing both active duty military and veterans.

Veterans are invited to serve as lectors and Eucharistic Ministers, or to participate in the presentation of gifts. The Mass is generally attended by hundreds of veterans and community members from across the Diocese.

Please call (518) 374-5319 for more information or to volunteer for the service.

Note: When should small flags displayed on graves on Memorial Day be removed?

Flags should be removed as soon as possible after Memorial Day as recommended by the American Legion.
