Cemetery Liturgy 


We would like to remind all parishioners that Annual Liturgy Services (St. John's Only) will be a “Liturgy of the Word” rather than a full Eucharistic Celebration.

Experience has shown that given the large area encompassing the cemeteries and the large number of parishioners attending this service, it is very difficult to distribute Holy Communion with adequate reverence and respect.

We hope our parishioners are understanding of this decision, and look forward to your continued support of our cemeteries as we continue to strive to maintain an aesthetically pleasing and respectful resting place for our loved ones.

Should you require any additional information on our cemeteries, please contact:

Pray for the Dead

Please pray for those who have died in Christ and are buried in the cemeteries within the Archdiocese of St. John’s:

Our sisters and brothers have gone to their rest in the peace of Christ. May the Lord now welcome them to the table of God’s children in heaven. With faith and hope in eternal life, let us assist them with our prayers.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord.

May they rest in peace.

May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed,

Through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
