Memorial Events

Each year we hold two signature memorial events, when members of our community come together to remember and honour our loved ones. We also hold other events throughout the year.

Registration is required. Suggested donations are appreciated. Everyone is welcome

When members of our community come together to remember and honour their loved ones

Butterfly Release

Each spring BFO Ottawa's community gathers for the annual butterfly release. There is a ceremony indoors @ Beechwood's Sacred Space. Participants release their live painted butterflies in the botanical gardens. There is a walk and reception afterwards.

Tree of Life

Each year before the holidays begin we come together to remember and honour our loved ones at the Tree of Life candlelight remembrance ceremony, which takes place indoors @ Beechwood's Sacred Space. Participants hang their personalized ornaments on the tree and light a candle in memory of their loved ones.
