The Goulais Mission Cemetery has been in existance before the founding of the Goulais Mission (a First Nation community) and the Our Lady Of Sorrows Roman Catholic Church. The first mass was held in the church on September 28, 1862. The church was built by Frederic Baraga, a Jesuit priest and the first Bishop of Marquette, Michigan.
The church was active until about two years ago (2006) when it closed its doors due to declining attendance and rising costs.
To reach the cemetery, take the private road, on church property, a short distance until you reach the fork in the road. Take the LEFT fork and travel another short distance to the cemetery.
The cemetery is normally well kept by the local residents, but was overgrown at the time of the accompanying photographs. The majority of grave markers in the cemetery are simple no-name white wooden crosses. The cemetery is still active today.
