St. Augustine

History

The beautiful, sacred grounds of St. Augustine Cemetery are owned an operated by St. Augustine’s Parish. In 1908, Fr. Joseph McAuliffe, the second pastor of St. Augustine‚Äôs Parish, consecrated a plot of land on Sunol Boulevard as a Catholic Cemetery. Several unmarked graves were present upon consecration of the land, dating the history of the cemetery back to the earliest settlers. It is likely that the unmarked graves belonged to Native Americans and Chinese laborers who worked on the railroad.

Today, St. Augustine Cemetery remains rich with the history of the beginning of the cemetery grounds, and has developed to accommodate the needs of the surrounding Catholic communities. cfcs is proud to support St. Augustine’s Parish in the maintenance and development of these peaceful cemetery grounds.
