St. Stephens cemetery pricing is going up October 1st, 2016. Changes include pricing increases to plot leases and maintenance charges. Maintenance costs for 50 years are levied at the outset of the plot lease. New prices will be: Cremation plot – lease $240 + maintenance $240 – Casket plot – lease $900 + maintenance $600.

Parishioners who have a deed of sale for a cemetery plot on which it is indicated that the lot was SOLD to them, will note that according to the Civil Code of the Province of Quebec, the use of the plot is for a maximum of 99 years. The maintenance fees on such plots will be levied only at the 50th anniversary.
