Gethsemane Cemetery was developed in the early 1970s and was officially dedicated by Archbishop Thomas Connolly, Archbishop of Seattle, in May 1975 to serve the Catholic faith community of South King and North Pierce Counties.

The property was originally purchased in 1888 for use as a Catholic Indian Mission School.  When the school closed, the property was deeded to the Diocese (now Archdiocese) of Seattle.

The semi-rural setting of Gethsemane offers a peaceful and prayerful space.  It includes a panoramic view of Mt. Rainier and the corridor along Hylebos Creek, a salmon-spawning waterway, has been registered as a “Regionally Significant Resource.”  Undeveloped acreage at the cemetery is home to small wildlife.

It is a sacred space, a place of prayer and quiet reflection that invites us to remember all those “who have gone now before us marked with the sign of faith.”
