Office of the Archbishop

   

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

In the life of every Christian there comes a time when we are faced with the death of someone we love. At that moment we rely upon our faith in Jesus and His promise of resurrection and life everlasting. In the midst of grief and preparation we turn to the Church where we are surrounded by a community of believers wanting to express comfort and consolation.

Burial in a Catholic cemetery is a final affirmation of that faith. The cemetery is a sacred, consecrated burial ground; a place where the signs and symbols of our faith are displayed with pride and reverence. It is a fitting place for gathering of families for prayer and devotions throughout the year.

Our five Catholic Cemeteries operate under the jurisdiction of the Archdiocese of Edmonton. The staff is committed to serving families in a professional manner, with care, compassion, integrity and understanding before, during and after the burial of a loved one.

Whether you are planning in advance or at time of death, the staff of Edmonton Catholic Cemeteries will be ready to assist you in making the best choices suited to the needs of your family.

 Richard W. Smith
Archbishop of Edmonton
