In 1983, 52 acres were purchased for the development of a new Catholic cemetery. On May 10, 1986 the acreage and chapel mausoleum complex were dedicated as Holy Cross Cemetery.
The cemetery added a columbarium for the entombment of cremated remains, topped with a lifesize statue of Mother Teresa, on June 1, 2008. Two additional columbarium units were added August 15, 2015.
Pope Francis canonized Mother Teresa of Calcutta on September 4, 2016.
