About this Death Cafe

Something new (and very old) is in store for you at the spring/summer edition of Saskatoon Death Café! 
On June 2, we are teaming up with local historical interpreter, Jason B. Wall, and taking the Death Café outdoors to Saskatoon’s original pioneer cemetery. Dating back to 1889, the Nutana Pioneer Cemetery is the final resting place of Saskatoon’s pioneer movers and shakers. Jason will be leading a guided tour of the cemetery at 3:00pm. Join him to learn about the trials and tribulations of the original settlers of our fair city. 
The Death Café will begin at 4pm. Come out to learn about Saskatoon’s early history at 3pm and stay on for engaged conversation on death and dying, life and living. 
Please bring a chair, a travel mug (for warm drink) and, if possible, a hand-held dessert or snack to share.  
This is an outdoor event, and will be cancelled in case of inclement weather.  
All are welcome and admission is free. Donations accepted to cover costs of future Death Cafes. Hosted by Karla Combres - Life-Cycle Celebrant.

About Karla Combres

Karla Combres | Life-Cycle Celebrant | Threshold Singers Co-Director

I am passionate about building community and nurturing real connection. As a Life-Cycle Celebrant and multilingual ceremony officiant, I create and perform meaningful ceremonies to help people honour and celebrate their life’s big moments – the joyful beginnings, the difficult endings, and everything in between ( I support those at the end of life by volunteering with hospice and co-directing the Saskatoon Threshold Singers, which offers the comforting gift of simple a cappella singing at the bedsides of the seriously ill and dying. As a regular Death Café host, I love exploring with others matters of death and dying as a window to life and living.
