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

On July 12, people in Ottawa will gather to honour and remember their loved ones by video conference, broadcast from Beechwood's Sacred Space and Memorial Gardens. Invitations will be distributed to people who donate $50 or more to BFO Ottawa in May, June and up until July 9. For more information, please visit our News section or our Calendar.

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.
