Location: Mission, British Columbia
The Oblates of Mary Immaculate (O.M.I.) Cemetery is currently on the eastern edge of the Fraser River Heritage Park. This land is still under the ownership of the O.M.I and is still in use as a cemetery today.
The cemetery was the burial site for the priests, nuns, and students of the St. Mary's Mission and Residential School and for many years it was the only cemetery in the area. This peaceful and tranquil place is the final resting place of many of the Oblate missionaries. One of the Oblate priests planted four Douglas firs in the centre of the cemetery to provide shelter for those buried underneath, but unfortunately, there are only three remaining.
