Special Events

COMMEMORATIONS, EVENTS AND OPEN DAYS

Grieving doesn’t end after the funeral and care of the bereaved family takes place all year round. Our calendar of events attracts families and groups to participate and come together as a community.

Family and cultural events such as Mothers’ Day, Fathers’ Day, All Souls and the annual Priest Mass, recognise and honour those memorialised within the cemetery and beyond.

The beautiful chapels, modern amenities and historic grounds attract large numbers to share in these popular religious festivals, nondenominational celebrations and open days.

Please note that in line with the latest government advice on COVID-19 to minimise social gatherings, all planned community events have been cancelled until further notice.

MONTHLY MASS AVAILABLE ONLINE

We are pleased to announce that a number of our events will be available online, so you can join us from the comfort of your own home. Please see the details for online events in the calendar below.
