Believers in Jesus Christ form a community of disciples founded on a shared faith in the Resurrection. A Catholic cemetery continues that community... even in death. Here all await the Lord's call to a new life.
The Catholic Church brings its own traditions, beliefs and sensibilities to the reality of death. Such customs can be fully expressed in our Catholic Cemeteries. These are places appropriate for prayer and liturgy, visitation and remembrance. Sacred art and holy shrines strengthen our faith in the Resurrection. The beauty of these holy grounds ministers comfort and peace.
The five Catholic Cemeteries in Edmonton are owned and operated by the Archdiocese on behalf of the Catholic parishes. We exercise an uninterrupted ministry of consolation, guided by the universal Roman Catholic Church, the Archdiocese of Edmonton and the needs, of those we serve. Our non-profit, self-sustaining operation is based on guiding principles and deeply held beliefs assuring permanence, reverence and respect for the deceased and support for the living.
