Holy Sepulchre Cemetery is a cemetery in Hayward, California. It is a Catholic cemetery run by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Oakland, which also operates the Holy Angels Funeral and Cremation Center at the same location..[1] It was the first Catholic Church-owned cemetery in the U.S.[2][3] Vineyards planted in 2006 provide grapes for sacramental wine used by the Oakland Diocese. The wine is bottled at Brutocao Cellars in Hopland, which also sources grapes from Holy Cross Cemetery in Antioch, and St. Joseph's Cemetery in San Pablo. The cemetery vineyards are believed to be the only such vineyards in the United States.[4]
