Amidst the tenderness of this season, we invite you to join us for a quiet time of reflection and remembrance honoring the memory of those dearest. The sparkling lights of the Remembrance Tree honor our loved ones as their legacy continues to shine. Family and friends are welcome to gather for this special service as we share readings, musical selections, and opportunities for remembrance.
