Introducing Catholic Cremation Services
Introducing Catholic Cremation Services, our funeral home for Catholics choosing cremation. More than 50 years ago, the Catholic Church introduced the opportunity for Catholics to choose cremation as part of the funeral and burial tradition. Within the Archdiocese of Toronto, Catholic Cemeteries & Funeral Services has the responsibility to provide cemetery and funeral services to our Catholic faithful along with the proper celebration of Catholic Funeral Rites and the Order of Christian Funerals. Catholic Cremation Services exists to provide guidance, support and funeral services when one is considering a cremation funeral. Call us today at (905) 670-8801 for more information.
Annual Mass for the Faithful Departed

When Departing the Cemetery Please Do Not Leave Unattended Candles Lit
In accordance with our Cemetery By-laws, Section 4, Item R:
“No unattended lighted candles or any other type of illumination, save and except supplied by the Owner, shall be permitted on any lot or in any mausoleum and the Owner shall be entitled in its sole discretion to remove and dispose of same without notice or compensation to any party.”
The reason the By-law against unattended lit candles exists is to prevent the damage that you see in the pictures. We remain thankful that no one was injured and that the damage caused was not more extensive. We appreciate your support in addressing this issue. Please visit the cemetery office if you wish to receive a copy of the Cemetery By-laws.
