St. Andrew Cemetery
Located behind the Memorial Church, St. Andrew Cemetery contains the mortal remains of the Hierarchs and clergy of the church, along with poets, artists, musicians, architects, doctors, lawyers, teachers and men and women of all professions, all of whom await their own resurrection to eternal life, under the shadow of the Memorial Church cross.

Annually, on the Sunday after Paskha (Easter, according to the Julian computation) thousands gather here for the Liturgy and Memorial Services celebrated for the repose of the souls of the departed. The honor paid to the departed emphasized the sacredness and dignity of life. In addition, we are reminded of their constant struggle for independence and human rights, and of the spiritual and cultural heritage which we, their heirs, are to pass on to future generations.
On the grounds of the cemetery are two monuments by Petro Kapschutschenko: one to Metropolitan Basyl Lipkivsky, and one to Princess Olha of Ukraine, one of the first royals to adopt christianity and who influenced Prince Volodymyr.

Also on the grounds of the St. Andrew Cemetery, one will find the historical Fisher Family cemetery. Most of the St. Andrew Center Complex is located on the Fisher estate. Henrick Fisher, who witnessed the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, died in 1779 and is buried here along with other members of the Fisher Family. The Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA maintains the historical site where one can still find many of the original grave markers.
