Selecting a final resting place in a Catholic cemetery recognizes baptismal commitment and gives witness, even in death, to faithfulness to the Church. The Church maintains Catholic cemeteries because both in life and in death we belong to the Lord (Romans 14:8). In addition to providing a peaceful resting place for our faithful departed, Gardens of Gethsemani offers a chapel for private prayers and reflection.
The cemetery is a vital part of Catholic life, expressing our faith, reverence and respect for sacred burial on consecrated grounds. Burial is an act of respect, made most meaningful when witnessed. Family, friends and community members are given a peaceful, comforting place to honour their loved ones. Our cemetery offers various placement options for the deceased.
