Heavenly Rest Family of Catholic Cemeteries

SERVING WINDSOR AND ESSEX COUNTY

We thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We are here to help you and your family. Please do not hesitate to contact us: to request additional information, to ask questions or to make comments as to how we may better serve you and your family.

Heavenly Rest Family of Catholic Cemeteries offers support to the grieving and if you desire will assist you in contacting Clergy anywhere in the Diocese of London. Monthly Memorial Masses for the deceased are held the first Tuesday of the month at 4:30pm, inside Resurrection Mausoleum at Heavenly Rest Cemetery. This monthly gathering offers living support to all who attend.

Heavenly Rest offers our families state-of-the-art facilities, giving many choices of various burial, crypt and cremation options. From our pioneer beginnings in 1781 serving the then new Assumption Parish, generation after generation, our goal is to minister to families at their time of need. We continue to evolve yet we have never lost sight of this simple goal. Heavenly Rest Family of Catholic Cemeteries comprises seven local cemeteries: six Catholic and one non-denominational (Rose Hill Cemetery-Amherstburg) and we are truly committed to helping families of all faiths. Simply put, we are here to respond to the needs of our families, whether it is at a time when death has just occurred or more ideally, in assisting you with pre-planning arrangements prior to death.

To assist you with pre-planning choices, you may easily contact our Family Service Advisors directly, by using the contact information available to you on this web site. Our Family Service Advisors have more than 150 years of combined experience and are waiting to assist you and your family. A one-on-one appointment may be arranged in your home or at our offices, seven days a week. Our staff is available for group presentations as well.

It must be noted, that while Heavenly Rest Family of Catholic Cemeteries serves Windsor and Essex County, we are part of a much larger Family of Catholic Cemeteries serving the entire Diocese of London. Our service to you is inspired by our Christian belief in the Mystery of Death and Resurrection.

We also encourage you to visit the Diocese of London website where you will find a comprehensive listing of current information with links to various Catholic Organizations in Canada and beyond.

Thank you again for visiting our web site. The information is forever changing and I encourage you to book mark our site for future reference. Call on us anytime to assist you and your family at your time of need. This is what we do.

Serving you and your family today and forever,

John St. Aubin
General Manager
