At the event of a loss of a loved one, the Church can be seen as a source of refuge and comfort. Our caring and professional staff here at Catholic Cemeteries are here  to help you navigate this difficult time. We want to ensure that you experience the comfort and peace of our Catholic community while honouring the rich traditions and spiritual foundations of our Catholic faith.

The celebration of the Holy Eucharist, the Mass, is a healing sacrament where the faithful can experience the healing grace of God. We celebrate Masses in Holy Angels Mausoleum in Resurrection Cemetery at 5 p.m. on the first Monday of each month to honor and remember our loved ones who have passed away. Many of our families express that attending Mass at the cemetery allows them to experience the closeness of their family members – both alive and deceased – because of our Catholic belief in the Communion of Saints.
