Columbarium Anniversary Celebration

Mary Hare Taylor Knight Memorial Columbarium
Founded in 1967; Restored in 1988
Mary Hare Taylor Knight Memorial Columbarium (close up image of blue forget me not flowers in full bloom. On the lefthand side the image is overlaid with a white outline of a Celtic style cross.)
Come celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Mary Hare Taylor Knight Memorial Columbarium, the 30th anniversary of its renovation, and all those loved ones who rest therein. Celebrate the lives of those we’ve loved and lost with prayers and a rededication of the columbarium followed immediately by Mozart’s Requiem, sung by St. Martin’s Choir. A reception will follow in the parish hall. Come early to place a candle on the marker of those you remember and hold dear. All are welcome.

Rest eternal grant to them, O Lord:
And let light perpetual shine upon them.
