Funerals are typically arranged, and paid for, by the Funeral Home of your choice.
A stipend of $150 is payable to St Mary's Church for funeral celebrations that take place either in one of our churches or at a funeral home.
There are additional fees if you wish to hire our Music Directors as accompanist/soloist ($100/each), or have our CWL ladies prepare a luncheon for after the funeral (approximately $4-$6/person depending on location).
St Mary's Cemeteries
We have 4 cemeteries within our Parish:
St Mary's Owen Sound
St Mary's Hepworth
St Michael's Irish Block
St Stanislaus Chatsworth
Effective June 1st, 2010, the price of Interment Rights (lots and plots) increased in all of our cemeteries.
For St Mary's Cemetery in Georgian Bluffs (Owen Sound), the price of a single lot increased by $100 + $5 GST. This means that a double plot increased by $210 on that date, and by $226 on July 1st when the HST took effect.
In our three smaller cemeteries, the price increased by $50 + $2.50 GST per single adult-sized lot, and subsequently, $105 for a double plot on June 1st, and $113 on July 1st.
All other prices, such as cremation lots, interments, and marker installation related costs, were also affected.
Information regarding burial plots can be obtained by contacting our Cemeteries Manager: Angela Corrigan at
