Since becoming an acceptable interment practice for the Catholic Church, cremation is becoming a popular form of burial for parishioners in Calgary. To meet this growing need, Calgary Cemeteries is building a columbarium garden in St. Mary’s Cemetery. Construction will start in the summer of 2017.
We've worked with a number of stakeholders, including the Calgary Heritage Authority, the Southern Alberta Pioneers and their descendants as well as the community, to design a columbarium garden that meets the personal and spiritual needs of the Catholic community while maintaining the reverence and heritage of the cemetery.
