Memorial Masses

These Masses are held the second Tuesday of every month at 4:30 pm at Our Lady of Victory Mausoleum on Plains Road. The names of all those interred at one of the Hamilton/Burlington Catholic Cemeteries within the previous month are available to be read in the Book of Life, and will be read aloud. The next-of-kin receive an invitation in the mail and all family and friends are welcome to attend.

Free Cemetery Tours

The Catholic Cemeteries offers free walking and bus tours of our Catholic cemeteries. Tours of Holy Sepulchre and Gate of Heaven cemeteries in Burlington and our Brantford-area cemeteries are held regularly. Cemetery tours are a fun and informal way to learn about the history of our cemeteries, and how we develop new cemeteries.
