For our current gate opening and closing times and mausoleum visiting hours please visit catholic-cemeteries.ca/gate-closing-times. All visitors must wash/sanitize their hands before or upon entry to any Catholic Cemeteries & Funeral Services (CCFS) building for any purpose. CCFS has implemented a Safe Distance Protocol. We ask that there be no direct physical contact such as handshakes and hugs, and our employees will observe a 2-metre distance with visitors wherever possible.
Our cemetery offices and funeral homes are open to serve you. Appointments are preferred so that we may serve you without delay. In-person appointments at the cemetery or funeral home will be limited to a maximum of 3 attendees. Virtual appointments are also available for your convenience. Please review the following information for additional detail:
All individuals must complete COVID-19 self-screening prior to entering a CCFS cemetery, funeral home, office, mausoleum or building. Please visit catholic-cemeteries.ca/covid-19-screening to review our current screening document. If an individual answers YES to any of the screening questions, they may not attend a CCFS cemetery, funeral home, office, mausoleum or building for any purpose unless approval from the cemetery office or funeral home has been received prior to their visit. If the purpose of your visit is to make funeral/cemetery arrangements, please contact us and we will make these arrangements by alternative means (phone/email/virtual appointment).
For Funeral, Cremation and Interment Services:
- Attendee limits at an indoor/outdoor committal, funeral visitation, funeral Mass or service are removed.
- Wherever possible it is recommended that attendees maintain physical distancing of 2 metres between people. It is recommended that all visitors/attendees wear a mask when indoors or outdoors, especially when physical distancing of 2 metres cannot be maintained.
- Upon request, CCFS can livestream the funeral service for family and friends who are not able to be in attendance.
- A Cremation Witnessing may occur with a maximum of 4 attendees.
Unwell individuals must not attend at a CCFS cemetery, funeral home, office, mausoleum or building for any purpose. Thank you for adhering to these protocols and for your understanding and patience. We pray for the sick, those who are caring for them, and for one another.
