In 1914 a parcel of land in "Old Kildonan" was acquired, to become the first Polish cemetery in that district. However, because of its location, the site was deemed impractical. Under the direction of Fr. Stanley Wachowicz OMI the Holy Ghost community founded a Polish Roman Catholic Cemetery in May of 1942 in the district of Riverside, on North Main Street (picture), where many Parishioners and Oblates of Mary Immaculate, members of Assumption Province in Canada, lie buried.
Holy Ghost Parish Cemetery is home to over 6000 people who have gone to their rest to be at home with our Lord, Jesus Christ. Many of The Missionary Oblates of Assumption Province, whom we are indebted to for establishing Holy Ghost Parish, are also laid to rest in our Cemetery.
The Cemetery is open year round, 24 hours a day, for those wishing to visit family and friends who have gone before us.
Cemetery has undergone some major renovation work in the last 10 years which includes the repairing of roads, removal and the pouring of new foundations in the older sections where monuments were beginning to lean quite seriously in danger of toppling over and the latest ongoing work is the improvement of the drainage system which will help to avoid flooding in Spring in some of he lower areas.
The Cemetery is under constant maintenance work and upgrading under the supervision of our cemetery manager. Park benches have been placed sporadically throughout for those wishing to spend more time in their visitations.
Cemetery prayers are held on an annual basis varying either in the month of September or October. These are well attended by hundreds of parishioners, families, friends and guests. The Rosary is recited as we walk in procession throughout the cemetery stopping periodically in prayer of our dearly departed loved ones.
Those wishing information regarding our cemetery are welcome to contact our parish office and assistance will graciously be provided.
