Polish Church in Worcester

My great grandmother, Mary Kalwarczyk Stafinski, was one of the founding members of ok, here goes an attempt at the correct spelling Our Lady of Czechtowza Church, around  1030

Thank you, I hope to see the church some day.  My great grandmother is buried in a  Worcester Cemetary, I think Holy Cross

My family went there also, they lived on Seymour Street and Perry Avenue.  Both of my cousins were married there, and I think one of them had her graduation there.  The church had a school at one time as I recall.  It was a beautiful church and they spoke polish there all the time (not latin, and not english after the latin changed).

Does this Polish church in Worcester have a cemetery, and, if so, does anyone have a listing of the internments there?  Find-A-Grave only lists 1 internment at an Our Lady of Czechtowza (their spelling) which they indicate is located in Franklin County.

I don't believe so, since if they did I feel sure that my relatives that died in the late 50's and the 60's would be buried there.  The Church is in Worcester County as well as in the City of Worcester - I think all burials from that Church would be where my grandfather is buried, which I think is St. John's (?)

There are 4 large cemetaries in the city of Worcester; St. John's on Cambridge St., Notre Dame on Webster St., Hope Cemetary on Webster St (across from N.D.), and All Faith's, formerly known as The Swedish Cemetary, also on Webster St. The last three are all in walking distance of each other.  There are other smaller cemetaries in Worcester, one is called Rural Cemetary on Grove St. but just wanted to list the main ones as they are older. There are smaller ones scattered throughout the city but have names according to the faith, such as a Jewish Cemetary, etc.
