In 2018, our churchyard’s Christine Cameron Memorial Garden, for the disposition of cremated remains, underwent a major transformation.
Overgrown bushes that surrounded the garden, and hid a nest of baby copperhead snakes, were removed. We planted grass, three rosebushes, and two dogwood trees in their place.
Once the old bushes were removed, we noticed that the eight stone pillars, defining the garden on two of its sides, lacked a connecting chain.
Lee Mackie, a longtime 8AM parishioner, recently gifted the heavy black iron chain to complete this project.
We are so pleased this project is now complete! Thanks to Lee, and the Garden Committee that faithfully maintains it, the garden is now a serene and beautiful tribute to loved ones interred in this space.
