Memorial Garden

The Memorial Garden

In 1991 the Vestry designated the portion of property located adjacent and on the North side of the Church of St. Luke and St. Peter to be set aside for development and perpetual use as a Memorial Garden. The Garden was consecrated by Bishop John W. Howe, May 14, 1992.

 

The Garden provides the following:

  • A hallowed burial place for the in-ground interment of ashes of our deceased loved ones.
  • A quiet place for outdoor services, small meetings and classes.
  • A place for the congregation and community to pray, meditate, remember and enjoy the beauty of nature.

 

Reserved burial sites may be purchased and paid for in advance by contacting the Parish Administrator in the church office. All burial sites are on a first come choice basis in the designated sections. The Garden Committee is happy to receive monetary gifts in memory or in thanksgiving to help with the maintenance of the garden. Donations other than money must be approved by the Church and no artificial flowers are allowed. Checks should be made payable to The Church of St. Luke and St. Peter and marked “Memorial Garden”.

Memorial Garden brochures with additional details and envelopes are available in the church office and in the rack located in the narthex. The Church maintains complete and accurate records on plot ownership and occupancy, as well as recording all garden memorials.
