My Dear Friends:
We have a rich tradition in the Diocese of Hamilton of burial in cemeteries owned and operated by the Church. Our Catholic cemeteries are places of prayer and reflection, where we come to celebrate the lives of our deceased family members, and to express our hope that they have been reunited with Christ in heaven.
It gives me a feeling of great contentment and pride knowing that the deceased faithful of our Diocese are cared for in such beautiful places. It is our hope and intent that the appearance of our cemeteries is a reflection of the faith of the people buried in them.
I encourage you to visit our Catholic cemeteries to pray for those who have gone before us, so that they too, might also pray for us on our earthly pilgrimage.
May God bless you and your loved ones.
Sincerely in Christ and Mary Immaculate,
Most Reverend Douglas Crosby, O.M.I., Bishop of Hamilton
We can help you make plans
The Catholic Cemeteries can help you make your burial arrangements in advance. This is known as pre-arranging. Our approach is pressure-free, because our staff members do not work on commission and have no vested interest in your decisions.
You can pre-arrange, and pay for, your ground lot, cremation niche or crypt, and also a monument or marker. Cremation can also be pre-arranged and paid for.
