The Catholic cemetery is the final resting place for the members of our Faith Community on our Journey to God. It is the gate of heaven. Burial in the consecrated ground of the Catholic cemetery allows you to share your faith values with future generations of your family. This legacy of faith is your gift to them. Catholic cemeteries are signs of hope that are places of prayer. They witness our faith in the Lord Jesus and the hope we share in his resurrection.
Come, long-expected Jesus. Excite in me a wonder at the wisdom and power of Your Father and ours. Receive my prayer as part of my service of the Lord who enlists me in God's own work for justice. (Advent Prayer) As we wait in longing and expectation for the coming of the Lord, the staff of the Catholic cemeteries invite you to consider works of kindness and generosity to help others in need in our community. One way that you can help is by participating in the annual sock drive at Holyrood Cemetery. All socks, scarves, and hats received are given to Catholic Community Services to assist the needy. Thank you for your prayers and your generosity. For more information about this annual sock drive, click here.
