Pastoral Care

Funerals / Memorials

The death of a significant other, family member or friend can be a very stressful time for everyone.

Fr. Robin and the staff will make sure that the funeral, memorial or celebration of life is one that is meaningful to those attending.

Planning a funeral can be emotional and a very personal experience. To help you and your loved ones prepare for the celebration of life that best reflects you and is meaningful to those gathered, consider pre-planning your funeral in advance.  

In addition, the Diocese of New Westiminster has published a booklet called The Legacy Planner which can help you make choices about stewardship and end of life decisions.  Copies of these are available from the Parish Office.

To book an appointment please contact the Parish Office.

For more information about our Church and rental space for a reception, please visit our Rental Facilities page.

In considering a funeral director to help with your planning, we recommend Walkey & Company Funeral Directors Ltd. For more information call George Walkey at: 604-738-0006 (24 hrs.)

Below you will also find various articles approaching the subject of death and grieving.

Memorial Garden

Saint Martin's has a small memorial garden where ashes of your loved ones may be interred.  This can be done on the same day of the Memorial Service or as a separate service at a more convenient time.
