Additional observations Queen of Heaven is a 30-acre Catholic cemetery founded 50 years ago to serve the residents of the region. It’s just off the 101 freeway, not far from Santa Cruz and Monterey. Not long ago, the cemetery chapel became home for the Monterey Bay Area Traditional Latin Mass community, which operates with the blessing of Bishop Richard Garcia of the diocese of Monterey.
