About Resurrection Catholic Cemetery
Named to honour the central event of our Catholic Faith, Resurrection Catholic Cemetery has been serving the Catholic community in Durham region since 1964. To meet the needs of our families, the cemetery offers a full range of interment choices providing for ground burial, cremation and mausoleum entombment.
A focal point of the cemetery, the beautiful Prayer Garden of the Evangelists, offers an oasis of peace and reflection to all who visit. Many of the Archdiocesan Priests, who have served the Durham Region, rest in a special section next to the prayer garden. Acknowledging the great work done by the Knights of Columbus and their families, Resurrection Catholic Cemetery also features a section dedicated to them, watched over by their patroness, Our Blessed Mother.
Our Lady of the Assumption Mausoleum offers the comfort and solace of above-ground burial. The prominent feature is a stunning mosaic depicting the Assumption of our Blessed Mother into Heaven, which graces the main committal chapel. The mausoleum affords families the ability to visit loved ones year-round sheltered from the elements.
Special event days are hosted throughout the year to join together as a community to celebrate the lives of those gone before us.
