Resurrection Cemetery is located just north of Columbus and Worthington on US Route 23. The Cemetery offers a prayerful atmosphere that evokes peace and quietness of the heart. It sits on 200 acres of land.
Throughout the cemetery, there is a pronounced rosary theme. For example, statues in the main section depict three of the Joyful Mysteries - Annunciation, Visitation, and the Nativity. There are also mausoleum buildings that depict the Glorious Mysteries - the Resurrection, Ascension, Descent of the Holy Spirit, Assumption, and Coronation.
There is a burial section in the cemetery that is a shrine for the Way of the Cross. It is in a circular design and has eight-foot gray granite structures with a stained glass panel depicting all 14 stations.
Resurrection Cemetery also has a nursery in which many of the trees and shrubs found on the grounds are grown. Different types of wildlife passing through the grounds also add to the serenity of the cemetery.
The formal dedication of Resurrection Cemetery took place June 11, 1972, and was given by the late Bishop Clarence E. Elwell.
