The Memorial Garden was created as a place for members and friends of the church to be remembered. Great care has been taken to make the Garden a place suitable for the interment of ashes, as well as a place of quiet beauty that encourages meditation.
In creating the design the Memorial Garden Committee toured several similar gardens in the area, worked with students from the University of Connecticut Landscape Design Studio and with several local landscape design and installation firms. Landscaper Tom Moriarty of Enfield proved to have the best understanding of our needs and desires and was chosen by the committee to install the walls, walks and memorial stones in the Garden and the stone walkway along the side of the church.
Each memorial plot in the garden is a fourteen inch square located directly behind one of the memorial stones. This provides adequate space for interment of an urn, or if the family prefers, for placing the cremains directly into the ground.
Each memorial stone in the garden will be engraved with the name of an individual as well as birth and death dates. In order to maintain the peaceful nature of the garden, no other engraving is permitted and other than flowers and shrubs maintained by the Memorial Garden Committee cut flowers are placed in the garden on the day of an interment and on the birth and death dates of the person memorialized. Flags are placed on the graves of veterans on Memorial Day, Independence Day and Veterans’ Day.
