Lay Chaplain Services

Burning candle Paying tribute to your loved one requires a caring and sensitive approach. Our Lay Chaplains will work with you to learn about the person we are honouring - their personality, their interests, what they were most proud of. We help you and your family through this difficult time by creating a ceremony that celebrates your loved one and their life's journey. We can suggest readings and prayers from a range of sources, as well as incorporate favourites that are comforting or uplifting for you and your family.

If you believe one of our Lay Chaplains may be the best person to help you plan and conduct this special service, please phone (780) 434-5819 or email

If you are interested in renting Westwood for your special event or ceremony, please phone (780) 434-5819.
