St. Joseph's Cemetery has many old gravestones and gravesites which are in need of upgrading and repair. We started the repairs in 2016, and they will take a number of years to complete.
This is a rather costly project, given the age of some of the headstones and the material and labor required to make it a success. It is being funded through donations, bequests, and fundraising activities. A tax deductible, registered charity receipt is issued for each donation.
Should you wish to be more informed about the project, or determine if a headstone of your relative/friend may need significant repair, please feel free to contact Jerome Grant, Parish Council Chair: 902-867-1160, or Jean Collins, Website Coordinator: 902-863-2482 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

NEW PRICING FOR GRAVES
Effective November 1st, 2016, for St. Joseph's parishioners, the price is now $250 per single grave. For non-parishioners, the price is now $500 per single grave. The above pricing structure was approved by Parish Council on June 12th, 2016. This new pricing structure is more reasonable, given the increasing cost of maintaining the cemetery. We provided a grace period of four months for parishioners to purchase grave sites in advance of the increased pricing.
Should you have any questions or comments on this matter please contact Jerome Grant, Parish Council Chair: 902-867-1160 and/or any other member of Parish Council.
