End of life celebrations

Pastoral service

The loss of a loved one is undoubtedly one of the most difficult experiences to go through.   The pastoral care service of Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel offers its services to help you through this difficult time.

We offer different types of celebrations in order to tailor them to the life experiences of the deceased, to those around him or her, and for the well-being of all.

  • Traditional Catholic funeral with or without communion in the presence of the body or ashes;
  • Commemorative Mass in memory of the deceased with a final farewell at the end of the celebration in the presence of the body or ashes;
  • Liturgy of the Word led by a lay person or by a priest, with photos or mementos present;
  • Lay celebration of the end of life in the chapel or vault with the possibility of readings of various texts, poems, songs, music and testimonies of life.

It is also possible for you to welcome your visitors to receive condolences before the celebration of your choice.  Our services are available in French or English. We have a full liturgical team, including an experienced organist and singers to meet your needs for the celebration.
