The term "cemetery" is Christian. It derives from the Greek for sleeping place. Christians believe cemeteries are a gathering place for a pilgrim people who have “fallen asleep” (1 Thess 4:13 -14) in Christ and who await the promised resurrection of the dead. For this reason, Catholic cemeteries celebrate the life of faith unbroken by death and consider the places where the remains of the deceased rest sacred.
At North Bay Roman Catholic Cemeteries, our facilities and services include a place to be buried, an environment designed to meet the needs of the Catholic liturgy for burial, a facility which encourages frequent visitation with attendant prayer for the dead, and an environment in which love is remembered, hope is rekindled and faith is awakened and strengthened. The Catholic Cemetery seeks to help people face the hard reality of death in a context of faith in the promise of eternal life. While Catholic cemeteries are part of the ministry of the Church, North Bay Roman Catholic Cemeteries ministers to the deceased, the bereaved, the poor and indeed the entire local community.
