Embraced in Life
Embraced in Death
Burial in a Catholic cemetery is an affirmation of our Christian faith.
The Catholic Cemeteries of the Archdiocese of Toronto, operated on behalf of all parishes, exercise a ministry of service that continues uninterrupted since 1855. We are guided by the Catholic Church, the Archdiocese of Toronto and the needs of those we serve.
In 2014, Catholic Cemeteries became Catholic Cemeteries & Funeral Services with the opening of Holy Cross Catholic Funeral Home located on the grounds of Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery.
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.
We will email you up to 4 times a year from this list. We promise to never sell or rent your information to anyone else. Your privacy is important to us.
These are the Catholic Cemeteries of the Archdiocese of Toronto, our heritage and a natural conclusion to our lives as Catholics.
