We believe the roles of religion and culture hold a deeply important place for grieving families and communities. The ceremonies and gatherings that our traditions give to us help to bring about important moments of clarity, truth, and perspective.
The Catholic funeral rite is wrapped in tradition that is both meaningful and healing for the family and community. Honoring the beautiful rituals of the vigil, funeral mass and rite of committal creates healthy and symbolic ways of meeting spiritual and emotional needs. The emphasis that the Catholic Church places on gathering together, sharing tradition, and looking to God for perspective offers a vital framework that we believe helps families and friends in their transition from grief to healing.
Our family comes from a long tradition of faith in the Catholic Church and our funeral home has served Catholic families in Edmonton and the surrounding area for over 110 years. It is our deep privilege to come alongside the Catholic community and be a part of their faith
