Honolulu Catholic Cemetery
The Honolulu Catholic Cemetery (also known as the King Street Catholic Cemetery) is a cemetery in Honolulu, Hawaii. The cemetery is for Roman Catholics and is located at 839-A South King Street. It is maintained by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Honolulu and has been the final resting place for many Roman Catholics from Honolulu since before 1930. The cemetery is open from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. daily. The cemetery is closed to further burials by the Department of Health.
Several bishops of the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary (Gulstan Ropert, Libert H. Boeynaems, Herman Koeckemann, and Stephen Alencastre) who served as Vicars Apostolic of the Hawaiian Islands lay buried under the large iron cross in the center of the cemetery. Remains of the early members of the Congregration of the Sacred Hearts also lay buried in a common grave on site. Other notable people lay buried in this cemetery including Robert William Wilcox.
The plots closest to King Street are watered and maintained better. Those plots further in (close to the Hawaiian Electric Company yard) appear to be minimally maintained, if at all. Several grave markers are sequestered at the corner of what appears to have been a chapel and tree roots from a ficus have obscured the original plots.
