Catholic Cremation Services
A Funeral Home for Catholics Choosing Cremation
At Catholic Cremation Services, families can arrange all of their funeral, cremation and burial needs in one convenient location. This expansion of our ministry allows us to completely serve and care for every individual and family when a loved one has been called home to God.
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.
Your Complete Catholic Cremation Resource
Catholic Cremation Services offers a space for visitation and liturgy in our Chapel. Our reception facilities are a welcoming environment for families to gather and share fellowship. We can provide a wide variety of hot or cold catering options that can fit any budget.
Cremation has been an acceptable option for Catholics since 1963. The cremated remains must be treated with respect. They should be interred or entombed. Scattering or seperating cremated remains is contrary to Catholic teachings.
Cremation Burial Options
Many of our cemeteries feature free standing columbaria thoughtfully located in areas that allow for prayer and reflection. Columbaria are granite structures with niches where urns with cremated remains may be placed. A bronze plaque and a memorial photo ceramic is attached to the niche to memorialize a loved one.
Cremation Niches in Mausoleums
Indoor niches are available in all of our mausoleums. Marble, granite, as well as glass front niches are available in either single or double spaces.
Cremation Graves and Family Plots
Another option for those choosing cremation is ground burial of the cremated remains in a cremation grave or a family lot.
Catholic Cemeteries & Funeral Services offers an extensive selection of cremation urns at all of our cemetery offices. We offer the finest selection of urns in a variety of unique colors, materials and designs. Cultured marble, cast bronze, artisan metal or wood are samples of the types of urns that are available. Both single and companion urns are available.
