In response to the rapid growth of the Catholic population north west of Toronto, Queen of Heaven Catholic Cemetery was consecrated by Archbishop Gerald Emmett Cardinal Carter in 1985. The cemetery is located on Highway 27 south of Highway 7 in Woodbridge.
Honouring Mary, Queen of Heaven, the entrance of the cemetery is graced with a fountain under her maternal gaze, which offers a tranquil setting for prayer and reflection. Our prayer garden is complimented by bronze reliefs of the Stations of the Cross.
The cemetery offers a full range of interment choices including ground burial, cremation and mausoleum entombment.
Queen of Heaven Catholic Cemetery is highlighted by St. Anthony’s Mausoleum with its spectacular main chapel mosaic. This two-storey high mosaic depicts Our Risen Lord, Our Blessed Mother and St. Anthony, its patron.
St. Anthony’s Mausoleum features the ageless beauty of Mediterranean marble. Glass and marble niches where urns with cremated remains may be placed are also available in unique locations throughout the mausoleum.
The mausoleum is both climate controlled and wheelchair accessible. Restrooms are available for your comfort.
For those wishing to keep their families together, there are private family rooms available.
Cemetery office hours are from Monday to Saturday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. To serve you better a cemetery counsellor can be available weekday evenings by request and subject to availability.
