ZABRISKIE CHAPEL MEMORIAL GARDEN
The Memorial Garden, located in the western corner of our church property, comprises a circular lawn surrounded by flowering trees, shrubs, and perennials. At its center a silver weeping pear bends over a rustic birdbath.
The peace and beauty of the Memorial Garden make it an ideal place for repose for the ashes of deceased parishioners. It is also an apt setting for outdoor worship study groups, quiet retreats, individual meditation and spiritual reflection.
Ashes are poured into foot-deep holes randomly sited in the central lawn; the site bears no commemorative markings. Persons interred are memorialized on a plaque on the nearby Fairchild Room terrace. Interments are recorded in the Parish Registry.
The garden endures as a lasting expression of faith, the embodiment of hope, and a song of praise.
