St. John's Catholic Cemetery: The Mallozzi Family Monument

The Mallozzi family has always carefully tended the family graves at the St. John's Catholic Cemetery in Darien, Fairfield County, Connecticut. You can see that the monument is well looked after in winter and summer.

In the next posts, I will publish photos of the individual graves by family. 


  1. What an absolutely beautiful monument, a work of art. It is inspirational. Thank you for posting this.

  2. p.s. Do you know what the "IHS" stands for? A latin phrase?

    1. IHS is something I've always seen in church and I vaguely knew that it had something to do with Jesus. I looked it up and it is a Christogram, a monogram that is the symbol of Jesus Christ in the form of an acronym, being the first three letters (iota, eta, sigma) of the Greek "IHΣΟΥΣ" (Jesus). In the 17th century the Jesuits began using the symbol. There are also Latin interpretations--Iesus Hominum Salvator - Jesus, Savior of men. Now we know.
